When the day came to wed, my husband and I both thought we were going to go to the wedding.
But, when the ceremony went off without a hitch, I got the feeling it wasn’t going to be a happy one.
We had just been told the groom’s name, which was John.
We weren’t going with him.
We didn’t have any money.
We were in desperate need of a divorce.
We knew we’d be going through a very difficult time.
When the marriage ended, I was devastated, and my heart ached for John.
I had given everything for him.
I knew he’d never give up.
I wanted him to have all the peace I was experiencing with him in our marriage.
But that’s when I started to wonder, “Why did I do that?”
As I’ve discussed in other interviews, I’ve had an epiphany about how I’ve treated John.
He’s always been a good husband and a good dad.
I don’t see him as a bad guy, and I think he’s really just one of the most loving people I’ve ever met.
I can’t say I’ve always been kind.
But I’ve learned to live with myself when I think about how the world has made me feel and how I have treated John, who I’m very proud of.
I think this is the best kind of therapy for anyone with a spouse or partner.
When I first came out as a lesbian, I went to my doctor and I was told I should not be married.
When I told him, he told me, “You’re a lesbian.
You’re just having sex with a different kind of woman.”
I’m not a bad person, he said.
But what he did not tell me is that I have been with a partner for a long time.
I am married.
It’s the only way I can stay with my husband.
I have never felt like I’ve been hurt by him, that I’ve let him down, or that I’m a failure.
I’ve never been angry.
And I’ve found a good way to live my life.
I’m glad I’ve come out, and thank God for all the things that have happened to me since I was in a relationship.
But the one thing I do not feel I’ve accomplished is having my own relationship.
I was married for about five years, and the only time I ever felt like a partner was in my marriage.
A lot of gay couples I know have been in marriages for five or 10 years, or even more, and they’re still going strong.
But when I got married, I realized I didn’t know where my happiness was.
It wasn’t in my relationship with John, or in the marriages I was still in.
John is an extremely caring, caring person.
He loves me very much, but he also loves the rest of us as well.
When it came to my first marriage, I did not see myself as a good wife or good mother.
And when he asked me about it, I said, “Well, I never had a good mother, so I can see how that might be affecting me.”
And he said, “”If that’s true, I want to make sure that’s the case with you as well.
“I think that’s a good place to start.
I know I’ll never be a good parent, or a good partner.
And if I’m going to have a happy marriage, then I need to be happy with my own family, my own marriage.
I’m happy in my own life, but I don’ think I’ll be happy in John’s.
As we celebrate our one-year anniversary, I know that John and I will be happier than ever.
But our happiness will depend on us being able to be open and honest about our relationship and our feelings.
