We were together for Transformers Dawn of War shirt, but since I couldn’t go to all the parties he could and he couldn’t spend as much time with me as he wanted to, it put a strain on our relationship. One day I returned the class ring he had given me and told him we could be friends but not date anymore. He said he figured this would happen. But we did remain friends until I got married 5 years later. Many decades later I found out he is gay. I’m not sure he knew that when we dated. I met him when I was 18 and he was 20, both students at the same college. We dated for 2 years and then he proposed. I said yes. About 1.5 years after that we got married. Like I said, it’s only looking back that I saw the signs. He talked a lot about his family and a lot of what he shared indicated that he was struggling to support them financially. It sounds like he was doing everything he could to save on bills and utilities back home but that it wasn’t enough. The sorta shitty part (to me) is that he was very willing to throw me under the bus for all this! I was the one under scrutiny and being accused and he let it continue.
