I am 32-years old and I’ve been with my partner for 4 years, living with him for 3 of those years. He was previously married, for a short time (9-months) to a woman who one day left him after announcing she is gay. She moved out of their home and in with another woman right away, so he has some issues with trust. He finalized his separation five years ago and finally got the divorce a year ago (he had been procrastinating about it due to cost and the fact that all they had left to do was sign the divorce papers, everything in court was done). He is an only-child who was brought up by unmarried parents who separated when he was 7. He had a workaholic father who meant well but just didn’t spend much time with him as a child. I was brought up by happily married parents with a dad who worked and a stay-at-home mom.
