Hope your weekend is going on well with your family..
Remember we started our new series of Family life issues with a typical family – Mr and Mrs Nelson…if you missed the 1st edition, you can read here …………………….
Here is another life issue as witnessed by the Nelson Family, this time around its Mrs Nelsons…
Its saturday morning and in my usual way, i wake up not too early and get it my weekend moves… i was just thinking of all the things lined up for this weekend while in bed when my daughter knocked and gave me my phone…. Apparently my phone had been ringing as i left it in the living room a day before.
It was my besto, Sandra …. and thinking it was going to be the usual gist of family, kids, socials etc. alas its was something i least expected.
My husband was still asleep but i couldn’t help but scream out in the course of our conversation.
What do you do or how do you handle a situation when a spouse reveals that he is gay or a lesbian.?
This is exactly the shocking revelation of one of our close friends who just found out that her husband is gay…. She had never suspected while dating or even after their marriage a few years back.
Its such a sad situation as she had been waiting for a long time to get married and then finally when we all felt its been worth the wait… her prince charming, handsome and well established turns out to be a gay..
Sandra was so confused she just didn’t know what to say to our distraught friend and had to call me for advice. After being married for over 16 years, i get a lot of people coming to see me on marital issues…
However, this issue was the first i had personally been involved in being a close friend so i was lost for words…
I need to think deeply and speak to more experienced people on the best way to handle this..
My people….. what would you do and what advice would you give?
