If you entered into a relationship with different expectations, it can be hard to be with a bisexual husband.It doesn’t mean that your marriage is ending even though your husband is bisexual.Bisexuality has opened the door for a more satisfying, trusting and honest relationship.
Step 1: Accept who your husband is.
One of the qualities that you fell in love with about your husband is his bisexuality.He is also defined by it.If you can accept him for who he is, your relationship will remain strong.
Step 2: Be aware of bisexuality.
It will help you understand your partner if you know more about bisexuality.Bisexuality is not a single model since each individual is different.A bisexual person is attracted to both genders.The individual loves individuals first, often with less attention to gender.There are a lot of myths about bisexuality, which can be harmful to your relationship if you don’t know how they are.Understanding your partner’s feelings will strengthen your relationship.The myth is that a person is either gay or straight.Heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, asexual and pansexual are just some of the different sexual orientations that humans can have.Bisexuals can’t be faithful.People have the option to be monogamous.The ability or desire to be in a monogamous, faithful relationship is not determined by people’s sexual orientation.The couple considers what it means to be monogamous.There is a myth that bisexuals have more sexually transmitted diseases.The rate of STDs doesn’t correlate to someone’s sexual orientation.It has to do with the individual’s care in protecting themselves from STDs.
Step 3: It’s time to give your relationship a new start.
It’s time to recognize that your relationship has entered a new phase.You need to be willing to make changes if you want the marriage to succeed.You know more about your husband’s feelings and desires now that you’ve married him.You may need to start fresh with new boundaries and expectations about marriage.
Step 4: Talk to your husband about what he wants.
It is possible that your husband has been struggling with his bisexuality for a long time.He may have been trying to hide his true feelings if he just now told you.He knows that you trust each other.He is now being honest with you.You can take a big step by talking to him.What do you want your marriage to be like?Is he interested in having other partners?Does he want to be monogamous?
Step 5: It can be difficult to communicate about sexuality.
It can be hard to have a conversation about sexuality.This could be the first time your husband talks about his bisexuality.He may have been worried about what other people would think about his feelings.Feelings of inadequacy, concern about your relationship, or concern for how your family might react are just some of the worries you may face.Being patient and understanding each other is the best way to start a conversation.You want your partner to be happy, and you love each other.
Step 6: You should be open with each other.
Communication with each other is important for your relationship to work.When the two of you can talk without being interrupted, set aside time every day or week.Talk about your concerns in a supportive way.If your husband is making connections with other partners, you might want to ask.Being bisexual does not mean that your husband will cheat on you.If he is going to be with other partners, you should be open about that.A good foundation for a marriage is lies and deception.
Step 7: Discuss your stance on monogamy.
One partner may worry that their husband will be unfaithful if they are bisexual.If your husband wants to be non-monogamous, you should support him.Bisexual partners are in monogamous relationships.What do you want for your relationship?
Step 8: The boundaries should be set.
What do you want in your relationship?Setting ground rules about other partners or sexual activity that you are both willing to participate in may be involved.Is it okay for your husband to be with one other partner or multiple partners?How much do you want to volunteer?
Step 9: Determine what you want your family and friends to know.
Some of this information may be shared with family and friends as you and your husband begin to understand life together in this new phase.Think about how you will talk to your children about bisexuality.When you come out to your children, have an ongoing conversation about it so that they can ask questions and understand your feelings.Give them time to process the information.
Step 10: You don’t have to make everything about sexuality.
Work pressures, commute headaches, grocery shopping, and so on will keep your life going.Before your husband told you about his bisexuality, your everyday life wouldn’t have changed much.
Step 11: Other areas of your life should be fun.
Marriage is about more than just sex.You can find hobbies and activities to do together.Travel together.In many different ways, develop a fulfilling life together.
Step 12: You can explore your own sexual desires.
It is possible to discuss your own sexual desires with your partner.Your husband wants you to be free to explore what interests you.When partners find out their husbands are bisexual, they experience a sexual awakening.Their relationships have grown stronger.
Step 13: You can visit an LGBT center for support.
An LGBT center is a place where you can get counseling and health information, as well as lists of LGBT-friendly businesses and community resources.CenterLink: The Community of LGBT Centers can be used to find a local center.
Step 14: Look for a mental health professional.
A professional who specializes in relationships and sexuality may be able to help.It can be helpful to have an outside perspective on how you are feeling about your relationship.If your relationship is in trouble, you might want to seek couples counseling.There are therapists who work with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer community.
Step 15: Talk to a friend or family member.
It can help to get someone else’s perspective on things if you feel that your sex life in your marriage is a private matter.Choose someone who is respectful and trustworthy.
