Met a sweet guy who was married at 20, had 3 children and now also 2 grandchildren. He is 50 now, has been divorced for some 10 years, kids all in their 20's. Has had one 3 year gay relationship he walked away from due to the partners drinking and abuse. Im concerned that I dont really want all the family responsibility he has and also is still tied to his ex-wife who never remarried. It seems that the family is his focus even though the kids are grown and all still live in Utah. His family is supportive of him now for the most part and want him to be happy. But I dont feel much self confidence from him and he still feels a connection to Mormonism and has respect for it despite the therapy they forced on him for 3 years and almost made him do electro shock. I guess I dont feel enough trust and respect for him. Has ayone here been a Mormon or dated one ? Im someone who scorns most religions and feel no fear or guilt about that. I never date men who have been married and hid their gayness from themselves and others. It is a trust issue for me. Thoughts ? Advice ?
