Another ‘My Wife Is Trans’ Story
Maria Wedin

Thank you for writing this, I’ve been thinking about putting into words what our experience of my wife coming out as trans was like but this so eloquently describes exactly how I’ve felt. The dominant narrative is that an event like this is the “death” of a marriage and it was really starting to get me down, the hardest part of my wifes transition has been tirelessly trying to convince people that it really isn’t a big deal to me, yes we’re still in love, yes I’m going to stay with her. Much like you I’ve always known in some way that she wasn’t assigned male, I’ve been closeted lesbian for most of my life (always been attracted to femininity) so its not a surprise either that I married a very femme presenting person. And not to miniminse the absolute bravery it took for her to come out to me, but it wasn’t the earth-shattering turn my world upside down announcement that a lot of people make it out to be.
