Devon has always had a picture of how he wanted his life to go, and, on the surface, his life has followed that path. He served a mission, married in the temple and has a small family. The problem is that he’s gay, and, though he and his wife get along great in many ways, continuing their marriage is not sustainable for either of them–trying to make their marriage work has been destroying their confidence and consuming their lives. He worries about the damage a divorce will do to his children, but he worries perhaps even more about the damage that staying in this marriage will do to his and his wife’s confidence, and what that, in turn, will teach their children. Devon wants himself and his wife to be the best people they can be for their children, to live lives of integrity and authenticity free of the guilt and self-loathing they have experienced through much of their relationship, and both Devon and his wife believe this will be best achieved, for them, through divorce. Though it’s hard to give up on years and years of work, Devon has hope that a post-divorce life will look brighter, not only for himself, but also his wife and their children.
