Hi - I am a 45 year old gay man who has been married to a woman for the last 19 years. My wife told me last week that it's time for a divorce. Big, big issue is that we have a 16 year old son who is in a therapeutic boarding school due to juvenile delinquency issues. He is doing great, but the divorce is going to ROCK him. We decided that we will try to wait for about 6 months, when we think that he will be ready to come home, but that's still going to be tough. I knew that our marriage was going to end, but I thought we would hold out until my son was 18 or at least in a better place. I am in the closet (was out before I met my wife-then went back in) and I have plans of coming out to my kids. I also have a 25 year old step son who lives out of state. I dedicated the last 19 years of my life to my kids and my career, so I have never developed any kind of support system for this kind of situation. I welcome any and all advice, suggestions on how to handle the situation and/or how to keep my head from exploding.
