I am a momma to two girls, and a wife to a super terrific guy I've known since we were just kids. We are in our 40's now, which doesn't even seem real.
I am a child of divorce, to a Mom who suffered in silence at the hands of an abusive, mentally ill man for way too long. He left when I was 10, my sisters were 7 and 2, and none too soon for me! I was still forced to go on visitation with him until I was 18. He is still a pain in the ass, and I've tried to make room for him in my life, but I'm not always sure why.
My dad left because he is gay. He had been with the same man since I was 16 (I think), but now he's effed up that relationship, too. One sister is gay & in a committed relationship with a woman, and my other sister is bisexual but currently seeing a man. I'm trying to figure out how to negotiate all of this territory with my girls as they grow up.
