Hi Lauren, I’m so sorry you are dealing with that too. It’s nice to have a person to move in with. We are in much the same place – our wives aren’t ready to divorce and cal an end to the relationship, but they are having a hard time dealing with it all while we are near. I’m sure there are a million stories and a million more reasons beyond CD or transitioning that were a cause for separation.
It makes it hard to know what to hope for. Do we immerse ourselves in becoming feminized and just leave the past relationship behind? Do we hope for a reconciliation? Can we (should we) stay married, yet live miles apart and only relate on a surface level? It’s hard when you see so many couples with a lot of joy and intimacy get through transitioning stronger than before.
