    Last night was the most freeing experience of my life. My wife and I talked, and I told her that I am bisexual. We she was very supportive and happy. Her only question was why it had taken me so long to come out. This morning I am at peace with myself for the first time, probably in my whole life. Knowing that I no longer have to hide who I am is so freeing. I want to shout it to the world.

    Congratulations. I know the feeling. I came out to my wife about 4 years ago in my mid fifties. She has been so excepting also.

    Keep the communication lines open. Mixed
    Orientation marriages are difficult but can be very rewarding.

    Very positive outcome. It took me many years to tell my wife I am gay (+1). She has been positive from the start and or marriage is stronger now in part because of the openness and to some extent the willingness to completely trust each other.

    You must certainly feel quite liberated after having that weight on your shoulders all this time. Especially with your wife's wonderful reaction. Congratulations!

    Congratulations, the most important is the supportive of your wife. You are lucky, not like me eventhought my wife support me but I am not sure she will support me for my sexual orientation.
