My wife discovered that I cross-dress and her disgust made me feel abnormalApril 14, 2019
DEAR DEIDRE: MY wife was disgusted when she discovered that I cross-dress.
She’s decided to stay with me but wants no part in it.
I have been a cross-dresser since my teens and the urge to transform myself into a female sometimes is still as strong at 50. My wife is 45.
When she was sorting stuff in the loft two years ago she found my female clothing and make-up. She was disgusted.
I do dress up occasionally in private but I worry she will find out.
I just wish I could dress up freely at home and not feel as though I am doing something abnormal.

DEIDRE SAYS: I get your longing for acceptance but you weren’t honest with your wife about your cross-dressing before you married.
Some women can accept that their man wants to cross-dress but others are horrified. You cannot force your wife to accept it now but my e-leaflet Worried About Cross-Dressing? will help you explain it to her.
