This is really an opinion thing, but here goes. If she is truly a lesbian and is not just curious or bisexual, then I think you need a divorce, as this would make you incompatible on the most basic level. Can you see yourself married to a man? Also, I don't think you should be offended if she is a l…

It's not easy to spot a gay boyfriend or husband if they are a "closet gay." There are times when gay people don't even know they are gay and they try desperately to change their feelings without much success. I do have gay friends and have gone through a lot with them as far as their feelings and f…

Narcissism knows no sexual orientation. Now, there are two main types of narcissists, and they tend to fall mostly along gender lines. There likely isn't any research to see whether gay men are more likely than heterosexual men to be "somatic-narcissists" as opposed to "cerebral-narcissists," though…

Hi there: First off, you have to decide if you are lesbian yourself. Some women are not, and are just curious. If you feel you are homosexual, (be darn sure you are) then you are going to have to be honest with your husband. I have to guess that you ended your relationship with your ex lover becau…

No evidence has ever came out about Hitler being Gay. I believe that the reason he wasn't quite the ladies man was due to his syphilis, which was common in his time. If he were gay, public knowledge of this would have and tarnished the father figure image he portrayed to the German people. Alot of…

You can't get rid of your homosexual feelings. The best thing to do is talk to your wife, negotiate, and get a divorce. This sounds harsh, but it is the best answer in the long run.
