Ben is 52, used to be married and has 3 children from that union in the same age range as my own. He is now in a gay couple after coming out in his forties and is old enough to belong to that group of people who dared not live according to their nature for fear of rejection and judgement. He is jovial and happy and I see him most mornings at the usual coffee haunt.

I am very glad for him and his kids seem to be fine with a father who is undoubtedly less burdened through being able to live more honestly.
