What The Married Gay Indian Had To Say About His Marriage And Sexuality

What The Married Gay Indian Had To Say About His Marriage And Sexuality

An unnamed 37-year-old Indian man writes speaks out in an essay titled “My Wife Is Friends With My Boyfriend: A Gay Man On His ‘Situation’”, and published by the Hindustan Times. He shares an honest account of what it is like to be in his situation. Read below.

***

I hail from a small district in Rajasthan. I am not sure when I realised I was gay, but I was only four or five when I fell in love with a boy from my area. We would play a game, in which I would be the husband, and he would be my wife. I would wait outside his house for hours to see him. I wanted to kiss him, and be kissed by him. We would sing songs for each other. This went on till I was 10. That’s when he got married.

Back then, child marriage was common in my family, as well as in the area we lived in. Soon, my friends also started getting married. Since my lover had already been married off, I, too, got married to a girl when I was 11. At that time, I did not know that there are other people like me. I did not understand the implications and responsibilities that come with marriage.

Later, I moved to Mumbai. My wife was still in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. We used to talk over the phone, but I didn’t feel the need to tell her about my sexual orientation. We got married again (this time, formally) when we were older. I had a boyfriend at that time, but we were not in a physical relationship. I even invited him to my wedding, and he didn’t mind attending it, since he knew my marriage was a social obligation.

After my wife moved to Mumbai, I told her I was gay. She was in denial, and thought I was talking nonsense. She suggested I get help, citing an instance where a girl came on to her once, but that hadn’t changed her sexual orientation. I tried to explain to her that no one had forced me to be gay, but she couldn’t understand. She believed that two men can only be friends.

After a few years, people started taunting me for not bearing children. So I even had two kids with my wife. Whenever she would lie next to me, I’d feel anxious about the prospect of having sex with her. Now, we have sex whenever she feels the need to, but not frequently. It pains me to make her go through this.

I have considered getting a divorce, but my wife and in-laws feel it would shame the family. My wife tells me that I am her first love, and that she won’t stop loving me till she dies, even if I am with another man.

After 15 years together, she has now understood my sexuality. She is also friends with my current boyfriend, and has become my best friend and confidante. Now, everyone in my family knows that I am gay. But they still don’t understand what that means.

My children are now 11 and 13, and are aware of my sexual orientation. I have been talking to them about gay couples, making sure they are open to the fact that people can be in same-sex relationships. They are very supportive, and have even faced harassment because of me. I have fought with people in my society for troubling my kids. I tell them not to treat them the way they treat me. I don’t talk to people in my area. I also don’t attend any festivals, family gatherings or marriages, for my family’s sake.

I know that people in my locality discreetly talk about my sexual preferences. They don’t understand what it means to be gay. Even if I go to a hospital for some treatment, and people there learn that I am gay, I am ignored just because of my sexuality. I don’t see things changing for me or for other gay men in the near future — not at least in my lifetime.

I’ll continue living the way I have lived my life so far. There is no other option for me.

    Unfortunately so many gay people will continue to sing this same tune. People get married for different reasons, but for gay men its usually either they are in denial of sexuality or out of the desire to adhere to societal norms and family pressure.

    But ask any married gay man why he chose that part and you will hear “cos I want kids” (as if marriage is the only way to get kids) or “cos gay relatnships dont last” (well they would if we all make the effort to stay committed and loyal)

      It’s like the MGM you have been unfortunate to meet are those whose sole aim of getting married to a woman is fulfilling a “child bearing project”. I have a friend, a younger MGM ,he has been married for about 3 years now yet no issues and that hasn’t made him to love his wife any less. He protects her from families attacks for not giving them grandkids. I’m an MGM. My dream for the future(say the next 30yrs) is for my kids to leave my house for their own homes and leave me and my wife to re-enact our honeymoon again. I look forward to waking up late every morning by her side,sit on the balcony with her and having just her alone. You and others might desire to have a man to spend your tomorrow with but I don’t want that. That is called choice. Me and you might not understand it but that doesn’t make it stupid. Gays are real. MGM are real. Bisexuals are here. What we think about them can’t change the fact that they are here and will always be here.

        @dearie nobody de follow u quarrel eh. And nobody is doubting that gay men who marry women are real. I guess its either y’all missed my point or my response was just so sensitive you felt the need to defend yourselves. In any case, I mean no disrespect, its your prerogative to choose whom you want to spend your life with and if its a woman, so be it!

        My point however is that the very definistion of a GAY man is one who is solely sexually attracted to the same sex: i.e a MAN. (You may wish to consult dictionary for reference purposes)

        On the other hand, if u are bisexual then obviously it means you are attracted to both sexes and may fall in love with either.

        And btw if you love your wife so much as u say, then y hide ur sexuality from her? Shldnt we be open to the ones we truly love?

        A gay man can pretend and lie to himself that he is in love with a woman. But in the end u’ll just be a butterfly who thinks himself a bird.

        It doesnt mean I am blaming gay men for marrying women (since this is what society wants). It just means we shld be honest enough and tell ourselves the truth. Gay men marry women for many reasons, but one of them isnt love!

        Just to add that a lot of MGM and MBM have been able to share their same sex attraction with their spouses without much ado. Some brothas even disclose this to their girlfriends during courtship or dating, giving the ladies the choice to decide. Some ladies found out along the line and still decided to stay put, and trust ,not for economic reason at all neither is it because of societal pressure.

        My understanding of being bi is that your attraction swings towards either sex. But i honestly think if you have chosen a man or a woman @ a particular point in time, then you ought to remain faithful to him or her according as you have chosen. You don’t marry a woman and then cheat on her like crazy with other men – the same standards as apply in a heterosexual or homosexual marriage should also apply when am bisexual person chooses a life partner!

        A muslim man is allowed to marry four wives according to the religion, so if a brotha wants to love two people dearly and bebdevoted to them, i say why not. As long as their is a mutual understanding between parties involved. I have seen such arrangements.

        Careful B4 u jump into conclusion of he never treats his wife the less. When you are the 3rd party in their home,waking up and sleeping in the same room with them,make such and we wud listen.One thing about nigerians especially the women,even if they are being battered,abused they put up a charade for fear of being laughed at. Thank God most of them have seen the light that divorce doesn’t make you failure!As for the mgm I can’t pass judgement, he who wears the stiletto knows where it pinches him,some can’t stand the heartbreak it gives to their family,seeing them all successful yet childless,especially those whose single parent struggled to finance and all,it would always be like this and it’s a matter of choice, if you feel marriage would fulfil you, then go ahead, it’s your life and story,so own and direct it!

          It seems you are one of the promoters of the project that MBM marriages are fake as portrayed in this week’s rants. The truth remains no matter what you guys wish but you need to do more than wishes. Take actions towards breaking more marriages like DM told us he did in his rant because wishing that marriages won’t survive or will be endured rather than enjoyed wouldn’t change a thing.

    You know, I’ve never said this here before but I’l say it today. Gad, I love you and everything but a gay man marrying a woman has always seemed fraudulent to me. It’s one thing to be gay and another thing to be bisexual. A bisexual getting married to a woman is no problem to me. But I will always have a problem with gay men married to women. Like Kendigin says, it goes against the very essence of being gay.

    Being gay is simply having romantic interest in people of the same sex ONLY! Falling in love with a woman simply doesn’t fit that. Anyone claiming love as their reason, TO ME, can as well rationalize the stupid notion that being gay is a game we play till it reaches time for us to get married.

    You guys are funny. You keep on saying that a gay man cannot marry a woman or love, you say only a BI can do so.

    Please, how do you know who is gay or BI? I thought ‘gay’ is a generic word for those who have feelings towards same sex. It seems like some people here specialises in differentiating between gay and BI guys just by read the post.

    As for the guy who said that ‘if you love your wife, what don’t you tell her about your orientation’, my question is, did you even read what you typed? As in, does it make sense to you at all? So, we that haven’t come out to our families means that we love our families any less.

    Anyway, this is the ideal situation I dream of. Why can’t I marry a woman as a first wife and marry as man as the second ‘wife’. We are Nigerians and polygamy is legalised. So what stops me from having both…

        Oga Tef, abeg park well joor. I am not contradicting anything. What I stated has always been my believe. I have said it here time and time again. I am sure PP would remember, since he remembers everything I type here. I also remember he made a comment when I asked if it was possible to marry a man and a woman, he said “this can only happen like…never”.

        My ideal situation is totally different from what is generally acceptable. I can never marry a man, as in, it is just not possible. I don’t hate myself, neither do I have anything against anyone who do such.

        I love women, I love everything about them. Sexually and otherwise, and I also love men. I am a mess. Sometimes I wish I was just gay and hated the sight of pussy and boobs. I wish i was like some people who cringe at the sight of naked women. But I am not, I want to have everything. I see a beautiful woman and I want to sleep with her, I see a sexy guy and I want to sleep with him. I see a girl and her boyfriend walking on the road and I want to screw them both. It is so annoying. So, I really don’t understand why gay guys believe that BI guys look down on them or something. It is totally beyond me.

        My greatest fear in life right now is getting married and cheating on my wife. I really don’t want that. There is a void in me that a guy cannot fill. I have tried. I have met different people, and I just don’t feel it. So, you guys should not be quick to judge. I am surprised that the people who are supposed to understand better are the same ones who are making it worse.

        @PP are you trying to tell me that it is only when I have sex that I’d be able to know what I want and like? Or are you trying to confirm what some straight guys have been saying that homosexuality is all about having sex with a guy? Some gay guys ask me how I am able to know my sexual orientation and role when I haven’t been able to have sex yet, please don’t tell me you are one of them.

        I really don’t understand your point. Between August last year and April this year, I have been opportune to go out with 9 different guys at different times, some once, twice or thrice. Are you telling me that with the little I have been able to deduce, I cannot be too sure of what I want and need until I have sex?

      @sinnex I will try very hard to ignore your typographical and grammatical blunders. How do you equate coming out to your family to coming out to your wife. Both relationships are very different. Am sure you’re going sleep with your family, neither did you choose who is, or becomes your family. We don’t choose family, we are born into one. On the other hand, the choice of who you make your partner is yours and yours alone to make. And if you love the person, then I am guessing you wont be keeping dirty secrets in the closet. Marriage should be built on trust and honesty, not a bed full of lies and deception.

      Secondly, your notion of marrying a man and a woman in the name of “polygamy” is not only silly but entirely absurd. Last I checked, any marriage to a man remains a crime in this country. it has nothing to do with polygamy

        “…I will try very hard to ignore your typographical and grammatical blunders….”
        Whether you try hard to ignore it or not, is not my cup of tea. Mr Grammarian, are you telling us who were not opportune to go through the four walls of a school not to comment on this blog? Are you trying to tell us that it is only when you read and edit your comment and you write very well before you should comment? What about people like us who are not good in written English, do you want us to send our comments to PP to edit before pasting it here? Not every one was fortunate enough to go through the four walls of a school. So, please, you don’t have a point here. Except you don’t want those who are not good enough to comment here. Not everyone can be as good as you are.

        As for the rest of your statement, I did not spend time reading it. I knew you were going to spew trash as usual.

        That is why it is a “notion”…”idealistic”…not “realistic”…seems like you were so quick to comment that you did not read what I typed. In summary, I can never marry a guy, and the only situation that would make me marry one is if I can marry a woman first, then a man later. I am sure you are smart enough to understand what I was trying to say. That means since it is not possible in this world of ours, then I am not going to marry a guy. I though this house was filled with smarty pants. This is coming out of someone who thinks I have a poor command of written English.

      I cant help but say this, @Sinnex, you sometimes sound like you spent 6 months drinking from the well of stupidity, what kinda question is ‘how do you know a gay or a bi guy’ … if you’re attracted to men or to women or to both, you’ll very easily know however much you choose to live in denial! I said earlier that gays and bisexuals while sharing lots of similarities, actually live in very different worlds! If you’re bisexual, the fact that you’re attracted to both genders doesnt excuse you from the requirement of fidelity to whoever you’re married or in a relationship with & it certainly doesnt give you the leverage to pontificate from up high …

        It obvious that you are not as smart as you think.
        I was not asking myself. I know what I want and how to get it.
        I was asking you. How do you know when someone is gay and not BI? Why are you quick you attack married men in the house as if they committed a crime? Just because you decided not to get married doesn’t mean everyone would decide same. Guy, you don’t know most of us here, so, how do you and the other minions know who is gay and who is BI by just reading comments here?
        Also, the fidelity argument doesn’t hold water. I am not supporting those who cheat on their spouses. But, are you trying to say that if I decided to marry a guy today, I won’t cheat on him? Everyone cheats, straight, gay and even BI. Why are you quick to attack BI guys when they cheat?

        Many gay people lie and hide under the “bi” umbrella and spew a lot of nonsensical stuff. Suddenly every gay MGM sees himself as bi and as so bestows himself the right to live life condescending and cheating.
        News flash- If you’re gay and claiming you’re bi, youre not only a hypocrite, you’re a disgrace to the LGBT community in general and a psychotic internalized homophobe.

        Need I remind you that the requirement of fidelity is a societal prescription? Yesterday the demands of society are monstrous and all were encuraged to damn society and live lives to the fullest,today you are aligning with society. Guys jump from one guy to another and we call it smart game. straight married men keep mistresses and its fun but when MBM/MGM date a guy it becomes fraud and wicked.

      Tef, how do you expect me to calm down when you are busy dining with the enemy. You are cheating on me in my presence.

      Is it that my D is not big enough or don’t I satisfy you enough?

      @PP, I really didn’t know that you were joking. You are the only one that knew you were joking…and maybe Teflondon. I just thought it wise to clear the air for posterity sake. Someone might get to read it later and might be confused.

      PP na my personal person. I just don’t understand why he surrounds himself with creeps and freaks. Or why he doesn’t call his “friends” to order when they go out of line. It just creates the impression that he selective.

    This is the beauty of the internet, you’re exposed to people from all the corners of the world, their life and their struggles. It broadens our minds and diversifies our thinking. We read stories of people, a gay man in India, his struggle with society, his society, and we can relate or learn or ignore. The internet really is a great tool to help us become smarter, learn and absorb.

    This is the expected result but as men that we are, we of cos believe our way is the RIGHT way. Of cos your neighbor is gay and married, how outrageous is that? Why should he go against the norm? That other man that screwed that twink from here to Sunday said he really does Love his wife and kids? Impossible! He must be an arrogant liar that’s only lying to himself, he has to embrace his true gay nature and stop bowing to societal pressure.

    Heterosexuals say being gay goes against the norm of society. Homosexuals say being gay and married goes against what being gay stands for. A bird is building it’s nest right on my balcony, I guess other birds are perched on a wire going “look at that bird, going against norm and building it’s nest in a human dwelling”. Is that a perfect analogy? Probably not but it’s just to show how silly we sometimes are complaining about how different one man chose to live his life different from yours.

    Most times, our passionate arguments or convictions are stemmed from our perceived form of morality but hey, our morals are as different as our faces are. So while the philandering straight married man calls gays, sinners bound for Hell, the single gay man calls the married-to-a-woman gay man, a fraud that should be burnt in the fiery pits of Mordor. It’s all so silly, funny but still silly.

    This at the end, is the flaw of man.

      Well said bro. I don’t understand why some people on here appear sanctimonious by deprecating on MGMs. Common, the fact that I do guys doesn’t mean I cant fall in love with a lady or vice versa. What you should understand is that sexuality is fluid, only you can define yours and on that note you can’t force your ideals on others.

        Sexuality is fluid, I guess thats y being ‘bisexual’ cropped up. But I am being sanctimonous because I can’t for the love of me picture y anyone would want to share in what is an exclusive relationship that is supposed to be marriage. Chris et al n have cited happy situations where the poor unsuspecting girl who found herself in a relationship with a bi-guy decides to stick or how the girl knows her bf is bi but still goes ahead to marry. I wud REALLY love to examine the psyche of those ladies. Besides how come none of y’all intending MGMs MBMs Inc have answered my thrice posed qxn?

        @ trystham, sorry didnt note the question “have you ever being jealous of your crush’s bf???” .
        Personally i dont believe in crushing over anybody (i mean why chasing shadows?) I can be jealous of a rival in a healthy manner . The cogent factor here is to have mutual understanding and respect among the lovers involved.
        The lady is no longer “unsuspecting” once she is aware of necessary information. Believe me @ trystham, people want different things in relationship (i know it is hard to understand), just as it is hard to understand why some gay guys prefer open relationship.
        Some dude here are not intending it, they are already implementing it.

    The potential MBMs and MGMs av stated their cases and cited examples of women and girls who are in the knowledge of their husband’s love for boys. They are so very comfy with it, they are happy. Which woman knows her husband has a mistress/2nd wife and is happy? I hear cross-river ladies don’t mind sharing a man. I wonder how deep their nonchalance is. A few examples come to mind. Abraham’s wife, Jacob’s wives, Elkanah’s, Zeus’, Sango’s wives….down the line. I bet they didn’t mind at 1st. He still ‘loves’ me changes to a bitter realisation. The knowledge that they have to compete for attention makes their lives miserable. Why not opt out? They daren’t. The stigma of being a divorcee, once married, ‘after two’, makes them stick like akagum. Some have been so conditioned into thinking “Its a sign of my husband’s affluence”. They begin all ploys to win their husband’s affection. Let me shout loudest at church. Let me cut my ears to make beta ponmo. Let me fuck him well, He will forget my rival. Let me bear him his 1st son. Let me kill my rival. Let me shave my hair n cut my breasts…all to their own unhappiness and dissatisfaction. What do the men do? Capitalize on their endurance and claim ‘she loves me’ and go ahead bringing more wives n gfs.
    BUT the minute a woman decides to have a string of boyfriends, she becomes a ‘hoe’, ‘a lock that can be opened by all keys’…polyandry was said to be a thing one time, I wonder how feasible that’d av bin in this country. That don’t sound equal to me.

    Sexuality MAY be flexible, but marriage is not. What makes MGM or MBM or being a Married Cheat wrong is no matter what brave front the ‘victim’ partner puts up, she/he is never happy they are sharing. And so if u cannot keep ur vow of fidelity, why say it in d 1st place? I am 1st human and I know pain. I sure as hell know sharing what is supposed to be only urs is pain.

    One sin mat not negate another; being gay may not negate being a philanderer, and we all may be in danger of hell, but I am 1st human and I know pain. I sure as hell know sharing what is supposed to be only urs is pain. I’m not sorry Gad, Chris, Pete, Diablo, Kristopher B, y’all will always be scum if y’all keep toeing that path.

        I maintain that some wifeys will happily share their husband either with a female or a male and i emphasis HAPPILY. This is all going to take place in respect ,trust and confidence.
        Polyandry comes to my mind as trystham mentioned above. I know of a world where couples attend swing parties, i mean husband and wife, how about that. Some wonen love kinky or freaky sex and will willingly be the one to invite a third party to join them in bed. Each unto their own, i don see many things, idon hear many things, many things.

    I await the day we leave MGMs alone. Most of the ones here on the blog seem quite happy with the choice they made. People are trying to make do with whatever life has thrown at them. Let the ones who are lying to their their wives lie to them. Is it your sister he married. Yh, it sucks so bad that a person is lying to the woman he claims to love but don’t forget she’s part of the society that that won’t let gay men be. In fact I’d consider some MGMs victims along with their wives.

    We also seem to be forgetting that sexuality is fluid. I consider myself gay. Tomorrow that might change. I’ve had crushes on girls that are really pretty but I’ve never really fantasized about about sex with them. Tomorrow it might change too. We really need to stop placing people in rigid boxes. A gay man might might discover a bisexual part of him and same for a straight man. And remember there are different kinds of love. A person might be physically attracted to guys but emotionally attracted to women more than guys.

      James, I’m happy that you used the word “some” because I’m not one of the victims. Let me say this, I have come to the realization that the “attacks” on MBM/MGM is mostly done by people who feel bitter and envious because of their incapability to swing between the 2 worlds. No one forced me to marry. Note that I don’t have feelings for any guy who has no touch of feminism in him. Talking of jealousy and faithfulness, its time for people to really stop being archaic. My colleagues wife always makes sure she includes a pack of condoms in his bag whenever the man is to go on a journey. If feeling jealous beautifies any,by all means let him wallow in it
