Spouses of Transgender Community Group

Being transgender it's not easy but neither for their spouses. This group is created with the intention of helping and getting to know others that are in. the same situation or to just educate those that are on the other side of the fence and want to know how does it feel or how would it feel to be a spouse of a transgender person. The main objective of this group is to educate, help and support others that have no one to talk to or can not find someone that will understand what they are go

  • I am a female married to a trans-man, and I wanted to share that it can be a really rare and beautiful thing to go through a transition with someone. There seem to be a lot of terribly angry posts on this site, which makes sense, but I need to share my positive experience in the hopes of offering my support for those who need it. For most people who identify as trans, they have felt like they...
  • There is just not enough information out there for people who have been through a partner’s transition. I have spoken to therapists, counselors, PFLAG representatives and they all agree, there are far too few resources available. Even the pros are not sure what to say to someone when their partner changes gender/sex. Internet searches don't offer much. Thank goodness for dailystrength. So,...

    Lesbian wife of FTM

    2
    My wife and I have been a couple for 11 years, married 8 years. About 6 months ago she started seeing a therapist for anxiety and then admitted to me she was struggling with feelings of dysphoria. Since then her wardrobe and haircut have become more masculine. While her clothing choices in the past were never especially girly, she did show off her curves. Now it's strictly boxer briefs, sports...
  • First, let me say, I am not receiving updates on who responds to what or who posts new stuff. So thank you for the support and words. Most definitely this is an abusive relationship. Not one purposely put on by my spouse, I don't think, but put on by society which he is following to a tee. I've been called controlling, I have been told I am attacking him by giving alternate...
  • So, my husband told me the other day that all the transgender people he has met act like adolescent teenagers...15 year olds. He said to me, "But I'm not like that, right?" My response? "Fuck yeah, dude, you are...I've been telling you that for months now!" How is this not a red flag that something is wrong with the idea that changing your identity, physically, is a healthy choice??Big pharm...
  • Hi everyone. I thank you all for posting your stories- this forum is very helpful! I have only talked to one person about this before, and it is becoming clear to me that I need to start talking more about this just to get my thoughts out of my head and be able to think more clearly! I need more mirrors to make sense of my confusing relationship.My husband of 7 years and I have a 3 year old. I am...

    Lesbian married to FTM

    Hi everyone!This is my first time talking about this to anyone. This is partially because Ive had a hard time coming out to my family and now I feel unsure of my sexuality. Does this make me straight now.... It's feels like I'm coming out all over again. I love my trans husband but I have found it hard to come to terms with it in my mind. I have even noticed that I don't want to have sex because...
  • I'm not sure I am going to stay in the frame of mind I am in right now, but I feel okay. (This is a huge rant with anger and non-sequitors. No apologies, just a warning)My husband, despite what we agreed to (first therapy for all the issues that amplify his dysphoria, then see where he's at), started taking hormones three months ago. He found a therapist around the same time, who...

    Lost in this new world

    Hi, I've been living with the news that my husband is transgendered for four and a half years now. We had been married for over 22 years when he finally told me.I know he must have suffered so much living with this but he seems to have found himself a great support network who encourage him in everything he's doing, and I'm just left to get on and accept the new relality.I don't want to accept it...

    Changes galore

    Hey, My partner came out about a year ago as transgender. He had an appointment today to start the process for transitioning to become his most authentic self (testosterone, chest surgery etc..) while I am absolutely happy for him, I feel left in the dark. I feel like I don't know how to fully support him and still keep myself afloat. I think I'm just apprehensive about the changes and have been...
  • Years ago, my husband confided his confusion about his gender and sexuality. I was supportive. He had to know and accept himself, I reasoned. Looking back, his first confidence was an optimum time for us to part. However, I loved him and did not consider ending our relationship then.I did not tell anyone until two years ago. I was being loyal to him by not outing him. And eventually, I was...
  • Hey everybody. I just found this forum and joined after typing "transgender support group" into google. I'm a 30 yr old cis female, who met the love of my life 13 years ago only to find out he identifies as a female 2 years into the relationship. It's been an ongoing struggle or dressing and not dressing over the years. Within the last month he let me know that "he" wouldn't be coming back...

    Hello this is my first time posting hoping it will help. I have been with my husband for 10 years and a couple of years ago he started to open up about wanting to wear womens underwear at first to now full entire. I have always been very supportive of him and open but he is struggling to figure out his own identity. I wish he would be more open to talking to someone or joining a group but hes...

    Getting him out

    1
    I am trying to come to terms with all of this and figuring out that I need to get a divorce and get him out of the house. I am afraid he won't listen to reason. I have already had him out of the house twice and I don't even know how I managed to get him to go. Every confrontation we have he takes lead and doesn't let me explain myself and then comes full circle to everything...
  • About a year ago, my husband came to me to tell me that he wants to be a girl. I must first admit that we have been together for almost 13 years and married for 8 years and we have a 7 year old daughter. This whole time we have been together I have known that he occasionally wears woman's clothing and panties. It got more and more over the years, but he told me girls' clothes are...
