Peggy, Roanoke, VA - married 1956
When he first told me he was gay, I said, "okay,
youre gay, well deal with it and go on." You know?
Not knowing some of the dynamics that would come afterwards.
Are you going to stay together?
(Pause.) And nobodyI
cant say what will happen tomorrow. I cant say what
will happen next year. But as of this minute right now, yes.
And I think I feel more secure in that. Because
for a long, long time I did not feel that from him. It was almost
like, "well, he may not be here next week." But I feel like
he has made this commitment now, that this is really what he wants to
do. And like I say, either one of us might change our mind, we dont
know whats gonna happen; but I think right now we have this solid
commitment to each other.
