Dating bi married
I know: My ex-wife used to throw that one in my face, along with my mother, my peers and pretty much all of society. There is no actual "man law." No one can take away your "man card," because there is no such thing.
But way down near the start of my Timeline, you'll find me partying with my ex-fiancée's football team after she (yes, she) kicked the winning field goal. We loved having parties at our apartment in suburban New Jersey, going out for half-priced apps at Applebee's, and having overly dramatic fights in public.When the Supreme Court announced that same-sex marriage was legal in all 50 states, I thought I would explode with happiness.There was a time when I thought I wouldn't be able to marry legally, so not only was I proud of my country, I also felt a personal connection to the moment. I'm here to try to answer some of your questions and hopefully make the experience you're about to have a little easier.There's a standard coming-out narrative that is available to most gay men.A closed-minded boss at one of my first jobs called me "gross" to other staffers for "dyking out." I lost a lot of my straight friends who were too uncomfortable to try to understand me.
We'd get dirty looks at the mall, the gym, Disney World, pretty much everywhere that wasn't clearly designated as gay-friendly whenever showing a smidge of PDA.
Today, I seem like any straight, married 30-year-old on the surface.
But inside, I still feel that being bi is as much a part of who I am as it was 10 years ago — when I partied at a ladies-only bash in Asbury Park in a rainbow tube top.
I told my parents that even though I plan to live happily ever after with Artie, my bisexuality will always be a part of me.
(For the record, they are now very supportive and told me if anyone has a problem with it, "screw them.") I told Artie that I'm so proud of being his wife, but I'm also proud of all the steps in my life that led me to him.
Gays may accuse you of 'taking the easy way out.'" The fact is, I've experienced both highs (being exposed to a proud, rich culture) and lows (feeling judged and degraded) as a member of the LGBTQ community.
