This is a little bit scary.
Ok…it’s a whole lot scary.
“Only one-third of couples in [mixed-orientation] marriages attempt to stay together after disclosure (of one partner being a sexual minority)…of the one-third that try to stay together, only about half are together at about 3 years…while a sizeable minority of people may find themselves in a mixed orientation marriage…(estimates that some 2 million people in the U.S. are or have been in mixed orientation marriages), most do not stay in this kind of marriage.”
The above quote comes from a thoughtful series of blog posts about mixed-orientation marriages.
My lovely wife and I are doing our dead-level-best to buck the trend and not be a part of the negative statistics.
What a ride.
