Our BooksNSW Women Partners of Bisexual Men

We’ve released a new book of interviews with women who are sharing their experience of their relationship breaking down due to their male partner being same sex attracted.

“There’s Something I Have to Tell You” follows the success of our previous publication “His Secret, Her Story’’ and is a collection of 20 women’s personal stories, in which each woman describes how she discovered her partner’s same sex attraction, her reaction and those of her family and friends, and how she navigated her way through her reactions and decisions to a new reality.

The book is available in paperback or as an e-book.

The Good Weekend’s national media in August 2008 brought a deluge of enquiries from new women. Thank you to all the wonderful women who met with journalist Greg Bearup. By opening up about their own experiences many women have been able to find information and support for themselves and their families. Contact Us if you’ve not seen the article, and we’ll send it to you.

Back in 2010 The Sydney Morning Herald, Melbourne Age and Brisbane Times published ‘The Secret Lives of Us’. Not every partner has been living a secret life, but this article may be of interest to women who do find their partner is living a double life.

The Australian Women’s Weekly wrote about ‘When the Other Woman is a Man’. Thank you again to the lovely women who shared their experiences with journalist Jordan Baker in the July 2010 edition of the Women’s Weekly.

More recently, in 2019, The Guardian published “Did I Ever Really Know Him” an article about a woman’s experience of her husband’s same sex attraction and behaviours. We were subsequently contacted by women around the world dealing with just this situation in their own relationship and seeking answers and support. Click here to read The Guardian’s article.
