Questions and Answers For Spouses of Transgender Husbands or Wives

Coping with and understanding the issues of a Transgender loved one can be challenging. One of Lehigh Valley Renaissance's goals is to help the spouses, friends and family of our members in this area. Spouses and significant others inclusively SOs of transgender persons can face a number of unique challenges and questions — especially if the transgender partner has come-out after a number of years living in their assigned gender during the relationship. A key to success is to have a willingness to communicate with honesty and openness. You can find a list of counselors and therapists with gender experience on the LV Renaissance website. We have several spouses within our group who have gone through the same types of experiences and we want to provide you an opportunity to share your feelings, ask those tough questions and discover that you are not alone.
