No one suddenly wants to be gay. They're born that way. She's been gay all her life. She got married to you, and no doubt loved you, but she was trying to be normal, doing what was expected. Now she's reached a point where she feels she has to be who she is. Nothing you can do but move on graciously. This is one of those cases where it really isn't you, it's her wanting to be herself after trying so hard to be 'normal'. Consider yourself fortunate to have had the time you had with her and find someone who loves you. I will tell you, having had your heart broken by a lesbian after the years of marriage is a sad story that many available women would find rather a good reason to be sympathetic and make things up to you. Nothing is ever all bad.
Hi Bonestructure. You and I are usually brought to the same questions and usually we share advice - me adding to yours or you adding to mine, but I disagree with one of your statements this time. You stated that gay people are born that way. While I agree that many gay people are indeed born that way, I do not believe that all gay people are. I know of instances where the persons childhood rearing and living environment have played a major part also.
