S7 Ep5: One Husband’s Story of Divorcing a Late-Life Lesbian

Guest: Wade Ferris

With candor and vulnerability, Wade Ferris shares his story of learning that his wife of 23 years is a lesbian during the pandemic. A dedicated father and husband, Wade tried for decades to unlock the stalemate and repair the lack of intimacy in his marriage. By his own admission, the disconnect from his wife made him resentful and “not much fun to be around.” He went on a mission to correct everything his wife complained was wrong with him, at last becoming what she called, “the perfect husband.” But, as he soon found out, this was not enough to save their mixed orientation marriage.  

Wade is currently writing a book about the straight spouse experience.
