It may seem odd to some that I will be celebrating in May if gay men and gay women win the right to marry given that, just over two years ago, I discovered that my husband of 20 years was gay. To this day, I have no idea how long he has been struggling with his sexuality. His coming out was traumatic, to say the least, but much more so for him than for me.

The couples include Jeff and Tanya, who've been married for nine years with one child; Pret and Megan, who have been married for eight and have one child and another on the way; and Curtis and Tera, who have been married for 20 years and have been aware of Curtis's same-sex attraction for just four.
