Review for Straight Spouse Network Inc, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization has rescued so many men and women who find out that their spouses (sometimes after many years of marriage) are gay. My husband and I had been married for over 30 years and were actually planning our retirement. As our marriage and family life with 3 children had been a happy one, I was dumbfounded. In retrospect, there were signals but they had not been apparent.

When I learned of this organization and began to attend meetings regularly, this was a wonderful source of comfort and inspiration I learned that I was fortunate enough to have a husband who was eager to do what he could to help me in my new life after divorce. Many men and women are not as fortunate.

This is a very caring group of people anxious to do what they can to be helpful - especially the Board Members with whom I was privileged to serve for a term.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it easier to raise money to be able to help "Straight Spouses" without adequate insurance pay for counseling. I would also like to make it possible for those without adequate resources pay to attend the yearly gathering in Florida.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
