Husband thinks he is bisexual or gay at age 60
My husband has had issues with sexual orientation for most of his life and a therapist said that he is gay. Now he doesn't know what to do.
He says he still wants to have a sexual relationship with me and deal with his gay side with porn and masturbation. What do you think I should do?Noel's response
Not being a marriage counsellor, I don't know that I have much to offer. I suppose you need to look at your entire marriage, not just the sexual aspect, in order to figure it out. Many gay or bi-sexual men and women live in functioning marriages, often with their spouses not knowing their sexual orientation.
I my experience, the sex drive begins to diminish significantly after about age 50 in both men and women, although men's sex drive is usually stronger than women's at that age. After menopause, women often lose their desire for sex altogether, although they can respond to their husbands as needed. Perhaps in your case sex is less important than it used to be.
My suggestion is you go to a marriage counsellor to get help in figuring out what to do.
