In this one-hour program we meet four couples where the husband has finally revealed the truth and come out of the closet. For the wives who discover their marriage has been a lie it is earth shattering.
The program examines how each have come to terms, or haven’t, with the men they married and how their life expectations have shifted. Some of them are single again and alone, whilst their husbands are getting on with exploring an exciting new world.
My Husband Is Gay enters four very different marriages where the couples are dealing with this confusing situation in their own ways. For some of them, the signs were always there but the wife couldn’t see it.
