Re: Are same-sex marriage couples welcomed here?

Love is Love. When people suffer heartache, abuse, health problems, problems with their kids and parents, it's the same pain we all feel. We can all relate to any of those because we are human.

Gay,straight,bi and in-between, we all feel pain and suffer the same way.

Re: Are same-sex marriage couples welcomed here?

One thing I love about this forum is: ANYONE & everyone is free to post here ...but true... depending on where you are coming from...one may need a harder shell to combat the majority view...this would be true anywhere though... and it's why we gravitate to our own social groups - for that "acceptance"...

Though I believe anyone can find their place here if they are not rude, belligerent and offers empathy, understanding... despite our differences..

It's funny because the more Liberal posters here feel this forum has too many conservative posters/ views... myself coming more from a Traditionalist lifestyle (conservative country girl- though I did loose my religion along the way) ...I feel similar as they (just turned around)... that our views are often looked down upon....we're too "old school" , "archaic" is often spoken, we're not living in the 1950's anymore -added with jubilation at that.... these phrases stand out like a sore thumb -to let us know we need to get with the new program..it makes me feel outside of "fitting in" here...it stings at times..

The Beauty...We don't have to all be the same, want the same things , share the same faith or none at all.....just find our own brand of happiness...there will be those who'll listen to us.. and offer a kind word...we may even be surprised!!

I have nothing against homosexuals or Lesbians....It's not something I understand sexually , of course..but red blood flows through all of us... one of my favorite bosses years ago was a Gay man.. as is one of our daughters gymnastic teachers ... I love these guys !

As @brooklynAnn spoke " Love is Love. When people suffer heartache, abuse, health problems, problems with their kids and parents, it's the same pain we all feel. We can all relate to any of those because we are human.

Gay,straight,bi and in-between, we all feel pain and suffer the same way
."

That sums it up for me too.

I love that you have OPs on here who feel perfectly comfortable posting about their marriage problems related to swinging, threesomes, and ****holding fantasies but same sex partnerships, that's just over the top and not ethical for some people.

yeah, ill never understand that.

though, to be fair, most people who have said they would not give advice to someone who is gay have said that because they feel that they wouldnt know how to give proper advice to them.


personally, i don't think the advice would be all that different. if two men were at each others throats, i would probably give them the exact same advice i would give a man and a woman. first, i would ask questions to find out what the problem really is, then i would suggest either solutions or resolutions based on what the poster actually wants.

i dont think it would be much different at all.

Why? If you know men, you can relate to a gay man. If you are married, you can relate to a gay married man or woman.

But I will say that this kind of "I can't relate because they are from a planet I have never visited" is probably the reason that gays won't be on TAM. And certain cops from a southern state won't be so welcoming.

Because I don't have enough experience with men's deep emotions to be giving advice.

If you are a man who doesn't know about deep male emotions, there's deeper issues than giving advice to hay couples.

Actually Coping With Infidelity is a good fit for ALL couples no matter what their sexually if they are being cheated on.

Re: Are same-sex marriage couples welcomed here?

Any one in a marriage or relationship is free to post on TAM, in any forum. Shoot, even people not in relationships are free to post. So yes, someone in a same sex relationship/marriage is welcome to post.

If you as a user/poster has not useful advice, then don't post on that thread. There is no requirement that every user/poster much post on every thread. Just leave the thread to those who feel that they can contribute positively to the OP of the thread.

I have enough trouble dealing with my heterosexual relationship so I don't think I'd be able to give very good advice. But I think there should be a section for same sex couples so those that do have good advice can give it.
