coming out 

So I am married to a man and just had the realization last October that I am bi. Part of me feels that if I were to come out to my family they would just ask why it was even important to share if I am already married. Like I made my pick and that’s all there is to it. But the other part of me feels like this has been hiding deep inside me for so long and I need to share it. Any suggestions or stories of coming out would be encouraging. This is the only space I currently am “out.”

@Birdie Thanks for being brave! SAME HERE. Was married 8 years to a man, currently dating a man, but it has been becoming more important to me to be open about being bisexual. I have a very fundie-evangelical family, and I don't know if I should tell them or just let it slide (they're already angry over my divorce and my leaving faith), but I want to be supportive to others identifying LGBTQ+ and that makes me want to speak up. I don't know what's right, but I'm happy you're here. <3

@bipinnate that is such a hard spot to be in! Thank you for sharing as well. I do have an uncle that is married to his husband that he has been with for probably 15+ years but my immediate family would most likely not be fans. I have the added layer of wanting to share our ideas of becoming polyamorous but that is still just at discussion level for my husband and I.
