'Should I Tell My Fiance That I'm Bisexual And Had Sex With Her Father?'
Agony aunt columns. Do we believe them? Not normally. We imagine someone with a wild imagination pushing it further and further each week to fill the page.
This one, however, was in The Observer and that’s pretty high up on the respectability scale.
One man with quite the dilemma wrote in to Mariella saying:
“I have been in love for the last year and recently proposed. After 10 years of bisexuality (though I had more female partners than male) I was happy, excited and in love. She introduced me to her parents three months ago and her father and I recognised each other from a local cruising site. We have been intimate on about three or four occasions. He has made contact with me and asked me to tell my fiancée about my sexuality. I asked if his wife knew about his, and we have reached something of an impasse. He has since taken screenshots of old photos of me and I have also found some of him. Shall I just walk away from the woman of my dreams?”
As you’d imagine, it drew quite the reaction from readers.
This man needs advice and he needs it soon. What would you recommend for him?
