- If you would like advice from Pamela on sexual matters, send us a brief description of your concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org (please don't send attachments). Each week, Pamela chooses one problem to answer, which will be published online. She regrets that she cannot enter into personal correspondence.

It is never easy for a person to come out, and it can be equally hard for a partner to learn that his sexual orientation may be different from what it seemed. Try not to "catastrophise" this situation. Your partner married you, and you have so far been confident about his desire for you. Nothing has really changed - he has simply tried to share something important about who he truly is. Whether he will want to act on his interest in men is a separate matter that may need to be discussed and negotiated at some later point and I understand that that may seem threatening to you.
It is understandable, too, that the revelation came as a shock, but the best thing you can do right now is to reward him for opening up to you and do your best to make him feel safe enough to share more.
