In 2006, we met Chris and her husband, Joe, a couple who seemed to have it all—including two boys. Then, five years into their marriage, Chris says something inside her changed. "Oprah would call it an 'aha! moment,'" she says. "I had an 'Oh no! moment.'"

Chris—a picture-perfect wife and mother—realized she was a lesbian. Joe and Chris tried to make their marriage work, but eventually, they divorced.

Joe says he was supportive of Chris because he loved her...and because he was also gay! Four years after his divorce, Joe followed Chris' footsteps and came out of the closet.

After her divorce, Chris started dating Libby, a woman she had been friends with for years. They eventually became life partners.
