Dont be shy , Be bold and come out. If your wife realy loves you she will stay with you. But the most important thing is you should never cheat. Contact me on My mail adidasgoalkeeper_30@hotmail.com so I can help you how to go about it whenevr you are having problems. go to your parent and tell them that you have not been feeling good about yourself because you have been afraid that whenever you come out they not gonna support you. But now you feel its time to come out and you need their support. Then break the news . Trust me even if they get a shock for the first time , they will get over it , in few days because they know its your own choice.
