I thought I would start out by talking about a topic that I feel pretty comfortable with and also incredibly private about. I have been with my husband for 18 years. I love him to death! He is amazing, wonderful, fun, great looking, kind and my best friend. He is also a cross dresser.
I knew this about him after a few months of dating. In many ways, from the beginning, it didn’t bother me. As time has gone on, of course there are more tolerant times on my part than others.
Things I know for sure: (No, I’m not Oprah)
Cross dresser’s are not gay. He does not wish to be another gender. It was learned at a pivotal age. It’s an escape and a way to express himself. It is misunderstood. It can be expensive! He has nicer girl clothes than I do! It can be a barrier or pathway to intimacy.
It can be frustrating for me at times because I feel like I’m “not enough” for him but it doesn’t seem to be about that.
