Marriage of Convenience

Wow! this is not a typical or usual story. their story could have been in films already.. i am going assume that this story is not fabricated. so, she is married to a man in China and she is also married to her girlfriend in Las Vegas. her husband has a boyfriend. the article doesn't say if her husband and the boyfriend got married. anyway... being in the closet has been stressful. FAMILY. fears. Religion. 3 reasons why i'm hesitant to come out and confess to my family. most especially to my son. i can accept judgment. i can handle criticism and discrimination. i can take those. but causing another disappointment to my family and hurting them is a different thing and it will be too much. i am not pressured to get married. we don't even discuss it. they don't ask. i don't want to assume that they have clue that i am different- i prefer to be bisexual. though a few people suggest that i am more gay than our other friends.. hahaha! well, i maybe am gay but the truth is i don't see myself being with a guy or marrying a man. my family's opinion, thoughts and emotions matters to me the most. so i will take the time until i get and feel enough courage to be open to them about my sexuality. going back to the article... i hope there will be a followup on this one! :D Link:

it is brave of you to come out and accept it. I hope you find the courage to say it to your family...and they have the heart to accept you the way you are.
