Soo confused... any bi or lesbian mums out there

(2 Posts)

I am going through a difficult phase in my marriage. For years I have been pushing aside my feelings for women and I am now in a position where I cannot ignore it anymore. I seem to fall in love endlessly, I have to work hard at hidding it and not doing anything about it...then I am left to deal with the heartbreak. I feel a bit like the only gay in the village and would like to meet other mums in my situation. My husband does not know about it, we spoke about separting but he said it would be an open war if I choose to leave, so for now my best option is to stay.

oh sweetie, i'm so sorry i wish i knew what to tell you. i would never encourage someone to stay in a marriage they werent happy in, but at the same time you need to think about your child/children and make sure you keep a good relationship with their dad. do you feel like you could come clean about it with your husband? he might already know or suspect if things havent been right for a while. i bet if you contact your local surestart centre they would be able to put you in touch with someone who could help, even if its just someone to talk to. they have groups for single dads, teenage parents, perhaps there is a group for lesbian mums too?
