Hi, I am 66 years old and my partner is 36. We have had this relationship for 6 years now and we love each other deeply and are very happy. It was only this year, in February, that I came out of the closet in front of my two children, both married heterosexually. They accepted my sexuality and relationship naturally and reacted with a shrug and a warm hug. Our relationship father-son/daughter has improved greatly since. The only thing I regret regarding my coming out is not having done so much, much earlier. I feel so free since I told my children "I´m gay"
