I was married with children when I came out in my early 30's. I am totally out to all my friends and family. I am single at the moment but when I have had a partner we have been totally accepted as a couple by our network of friends and family.
The only time I still feel uncomfortable about my sexuality is if my partner and I have shown affection in public. If we have held hands walking along a beach it can still attract attention and open discussion and pointing. I guess it is just that they are still not familiar with seeing it.
