The first blog that Devon and I ran together (SameSides: Amicable Divorce and Getting Along With Your Ex) was a success.
As we continued along with our writing and opportunities to spread our story and message to other media outlets, we began exhausting the topics that pertained specifically to amicable divorce. Our blog started morphing into the core reason for our divorce: Devon came out as gay after 10 years of marriage and three kids.
With LGBTQIA issues as a major hot button of the last decade or so, we began speaking and writing more about marriage equality, homosexuality and the Church, and the topic of Mixed Orientation Marriage (MOM). And so a natural split-off of our original blog needed occur.
Thus, this new SameSides blog has been created.
Under this tab, I will post the most pertinent pieces from that blog that have more to do LGBT topics than amicable divorce. I will continue to keep up with our first blog as needed, so feel free to visit it and comment.
Thanks for all of the support in the past, and welcome to this new adventure of creating a supportive and safe place for straight spouses who may not have known that they had been living in a Mixed Orientation Marriage.
