Research shows that 20% of gay men will marry women. For gay people who come out later in their lives, this can be a scary and painful process for the whole family, but psychotherapist William Brown, APC, has encouraging words and advice on how to handle the transition, and find support for everyone involved. We discuss the "Armageddon factor" of realizing something needs to change; the guilt and shame; common experiences for the gay partner and the spouse; the role of societal, family and religious pressures; common fears; our fixation with perfection; the language of divorce; the "teenager effect" and much more.
William leads a therapuetic group called, "Out Late" in Atlanta. Please check out his website for more information.
