and Mixed Orientation Marriages
Do you have questions or concerns about bisexual
feelings or fantasies?
Are you trying to sort out and explore your sexual
identity? Does it feel like your sexual identity is fluid or just
doesn't fit the categories? Are you concerned because your
partner/spouse is bisexual?
Are you in a mixed orientation marriage? Mixed
orientation relationships are those in
which your sexual identity/orientation differs from your partner's. An
example is a bisexual man married to a straight (heterosexual) woman.
Aren't bisexuals just closet gays (trying to play it
straight)? This is one of the most common myths about bisexuals.
Another myth is that bisexuals can
never settle down and be happy with a single partner of either sex. In
fact, many bisexuals are monogamous in healthy, satisfying long-term
myths about bisexuality are damaging to all
As a monogamous bisexual man, I understand the
challenges and difficulties of being
bisexual. And I know how shame about sex can damage relationships.
My goal is to help individuals and
couples talk honestly, grow in their
understanding of their sexual identity, heal their shame, negotiate
ways of being
together, and decide if they will continue in relationship together.
