You mentioned the problem of the lack of acceptance from your wife. I assume you wanted my thoughts on this typical problem.
The best one can expect from a spouse is toleration in varying degrees. Very few spouses are fully tolerant. Your wife is obviously not even minimally tolerant and the turmoil you say she is experiencing is a serious problem.
In such situations it is often better to assume a spouse is not going to embrace one's dressing. Pushing for understanding will result in increased turmoil and resentment.
All TG's dream of that A+++ understanding spouse. But in most situations it simply is a fantasy. Keep in mind that only other TGs really understand the motivation to dress. So it is best to practice"out of sight out of mind" with a spouse. Limit your dressing away from home with other TGs, support groups and TG functions.
Nice to meet you. Well I'm in Western Carolina (near Asheville). If you are ever near there, drop me a line and we can meet for lunch or something. Chapel Hill is more on Eastern Carolina side. Take care. :)
It's nice to meet you. I'm a very well known trans woman in New Mexico. I hope you can come to our Friday night meetings. We meet each Friday night at that church on the corner of Lomas & Girard. The meeting starts at 7:30 PM.
Dear Joellie, it is difficult being married and being a TG. But, me and the wife are very open and have great communication with one another. She is the one who actually got me started cross dressing. When we first got together I told her I was bi sexual and would continue to have sexual encounters with males. She is very supportive of me and who I am. Anyway, one day were gettin kinky and she dressed me in some stockings and garter, it brought back buried memories of me and wearing my mom's bras and hose growing up. So it took off from there, Now I'm part time (work is the only place I don't dress now) and she helps me with outfits, make up, voice, pretty much everything. But, she did marry a man and want the man part of me sometimes, so I bring Roy back to keep the balance. I know it is difficult for a lot of sister's out there who wife is not as supportive as mine, and I know I am lucky in that regard. Your right, the best therapy is to talk to other gurls in the same situation, so when you get to Vegas, Lets get some coffee and chat. Kisses, Roxanne
