After that I started consciously avoiding it while passing it off like I didn't realise I was doing it. Given how we were going to have kids this was probably one of the contributing factors to the eventual breakdown of our relationship I suppose. We ended it on semi-messy terms and lost contact with each other for a few years.

I got back in contact with her after I came out, thought she deserved to know, and she told me she never once suspected I was gay even though we spent almost every day with each other. We have no hard feelings towards each other and we're both glad we dodged a bullet by not having a child together.

8/15. I've been married for 5 years, and have an 18-month old now. Whether it is her PTSD from a traumatic birth, or me fantasizing more and more about sex with men, or a combination of the two, we haven't been very intimate in, well, 18 months. So we're in a strange limbo. I've come out to myself and her that, at the very least, I'm bisexual and we're taking steps to deal with her PTSD.

It remains to be seen if we'll find the intimacy ever again, but in the meantime we're best friends and good roommates, and we have a commitment to a pretty awesome kid that we're going to be a stable family. The biggest thing is we're communicating with each other about what is going on, so things aren't deteriorating to a point where we are hostile or resentful to each other.

So my sexual exploration gets put on hold for as long as it needs to in favor of raising a child. In the meantime, we're asexual. Definitely not the way I would have envisioned my marriage turning out, but here we are.
