I have a very special guest on the blog today. My friend Ben* shares his story of separation after 17 years of marriage and 3 great kids, coming out to his family and friends about his sexuality and his subsequent re-partnering.
When I met my husband, I had a 3 year old daughter. He had a 4 year old daughter and a 2 year old son.
The kids met for the first time before we were a couple, in the brief period when we were just friends. “Friends” who were secretly sussing each other out.
A year ago this week, my friend posted a photo on her facebook page that made me chuckle. It was this shot, obviously taken inside a hospital:
A friend drew my attention to a recent column in the Daily
Terrorgraph Telegraph, written by a man named Stephen Acott.
I’d never heard of Mr Acott before, not being a huge aficionado of that particular publication, so it was with interest that I perused his opinions on the way some mothers choose to parent.
