Lesbian Divorce with Children

Divorce creates crisis in families with messy painful situations to overcome.  The separation can leave the couple and other family members dealing with grief, guilt, loss, and a sense of failure.  Unfortunately, when children are involved, the pain may be exasperated as they deal with their own loss and need help in coping with all the changes that occur when the family breakup.   In lesbian relationships, this may be even further complicated by social misunderstandings and lack of legal rights in this population.

Divorce changes the pattern of communication, and people who once shared their lives together can soon become enemies.  Researchers have described lesbian divorce with children, as women being torn between letting go of their relationship and holding on at the same time to their children.  They argued that women separating have to stop loving one another but continue to express love towards their children they share.  This is an extremely taxing emotional task for parents during divorce.

In terms of the family and grieving the loss of the relationship, the couple must allow themselves to feel the failure that the collapse has surfaced, such as the sadness, anger, and disappointment.  In addition, the parent must cope with the floods of emotions that occur in divorce without falling apart in ways that are unhealthy and maladaptive (e.g., using substances or alcohol, leaving the family, and fighting in front of the children) (Clunis and Green, 2003).

Lesbian relationships also have unique legal issues they have to come to terms with, unlike a heterosexual couple.  As marriage for homosexual couples is not a legal right in many states, both parents may become victims when it comes to the dissolution of the union.  In addition, lesbian couples who had children in “legitimate” marriage may lose custody or rights to their children if they are not the biological parent.

The divorce crisis goes beyond the children, but also redefining the self without the other; they have to let go of the “we” identity and find out who they are again by rediscovering the self.  This can be difficult considering that certain communities and societies do not even acknowledge the loss and pain involved in the termination of a gay relationship.  In addition, the pain may be reinforced and the person may become isolated by society using the break-up as a justification as to why homosexuality is wrong and dysfunctional.  The children of gay relationship may be affected by this lack of understanding and discrimination and negatively affect the individuals.  The need to make a commitment to the well-being of their children may become increasingly difficult.

Since the 1950s, the families have become increasingly diverse with an increased number of singles, cohabitation, divorce; gay and lesbian unions, living-apart-together, more long-distance relationships; non-marital births, and lone-parent families.  He describes that our understating of divorce needs to change in terms of where we find ourselves today, and ignoring homosexual divorce is a disservice to those families and their children.

The divorce cycle, which is defined as the family structure of origin that influences the effects of marriage formation and stability.  It has been suggested that the children of divorce are much more likely to end their own marriages in divorce.  He suggested that divorce regardless of the structure of the family; the system is transferred from one generation to the next.  This phenomenon is important to research, because the divorce cycle affects a wide spectrum of issues in the family system, such as the role modeling, the lessons’ children learn about relationship skills and marital commitment.

Although couples separating with children encounter extreme pain those children of gay families may face further challenges. Among the issues for which psychological research has been seen as particularly interested with over that last few decades.  It is especially of interests in the issue surrounding child custody after divorce, same-sex marriage, adoption, and foster care. The argument provided an impression of the current legal concerns for homosexual parents and their children in the United States.  Research findings on lesbian and gay parents and their children suggested that they did not deserve the discrimination they experience in the legal system, which exasperated the emotional crisis of divorce.

Divorce in lesbian couples may involve child custody cases when previously married heterosexual parents are divorcing after their wife has come out as a lesbian and the parents cannot agree on custody and visitation arrangements.  In some cases, the crisis in the individual arose when their sexual orientation is taken into question regarding custody and visitation decisions for their minor children.  Furthermore, when lesbian couples have adopted a child and subsequently separates, custody and visitation may become a legal issue.  Lastly, homosexual parented families may evoke a variety of legal and policy issues, including those involving issues concerning the use of reproductive technology, surrogacy, adoption, and foster care .

Understanding the complexity of lesbian and gay relationships and their children can give insight to those working with these families during the crisis of divorce- but it is also our duty as members of our community to fight for our rights.  It can be easy to miss the difficulties a person is facing when their legal rights are not supported or ignored. The crisis can move from family issues to an internal problem with the self and their world.

Lesbian step families can consist of children from an earlier relationship; her children; and partner, who may or may not have children from a prior union.  Most children are conceived from previous straight relationships.  In addition, lesbian families experience similar difficulties with any other heterosexual blended families, such as rejection, jealousy, and problems between children and step-parents.  However, there are unique problems in lesbian families; such as fears about losing custody, having their sexual orientation exposed to other families perhaps even their own children.   This type of exposure creates a crisis and a sense of isolation that is notwithstanding greater for their children than themselves, because their children as they do not have peer support.  Children of gay parents may have to keep their parents’ sexual orientation a secret, which can be isolating from peers and their community.

Lesbian couples enter therapy because of a crisis with boundaries, sexuality, balancing power, stage differences in coming out process, children and co-parenting, difficulty with family, and the dissolution of the relationship. However, because of the lack of legal and social support this can create numerous problems when those families separate. Because there is no judicial structure of the division of property or determination of custody and financial support of the children, problems could arise.  Unfortunately, there is often a parent with no legal relationship with her children who when a break-up occurs, she may lose all contact with her children.

Educate yourself about the matters and the consequences that could arise when lesbians’ relationship fall apart, and children are involved.


  • Find a clinician or therapist that is able to mediate with you and your partner before proceeding with custody suits.
  •  I  recommend my lesbian clients to draw up a relationship and parenting contracts that can be used in the event of a separation.
  • Recognize that your family will encounter stigma, and not ignore that both parents share parenting  roles.
  • The problems you may encounter during their separation may be worsened by social stigma and homophobic attitudes, be aware and build a social support system and get help from people and places, such as family, friends, and therapist, LGBT centers, support groups.

Don’t act in fear or hide in shame. Unfortunately, everything in life comes to some type of end.  The most important thing to remember is that as the seasons change in your relationship you have to continue to take care of yourself.  If mama is happy- babies are happy too.…

Reconciliation in Lesbian Relationships

On Apr 13th 2022, when I woke up that morning no one could have convinced me of where I would be almost a year later. I woke up distresses, anxious, and at an utter loss.

The day before my car broke down beyond repair, my boss warned me that if I did not have a car, I would not have a job; money was a problem, found out I had a stomach hernia, and the worst part of it all my girlfriend had run away with her ex all within 24hrs.

The hurt was so unexpected and out of my control, that it spun me into a dark place, which took me months to get over.

It was that week that The Intersex Recognition was created, I felt so lonely in my community and dumbfounded by the intricacies of being with a woman, I needed to learn more.

Even after I got a bran new car, got promote into a new job, money issues were settling, got accepted into a PhD program, and had a sweet new girlfriend; I realized I was still hurting and lost.

Seven months would go by; women would come in and out of my life, with the bitter taste of her ghost staining my memory.

Seven months of crying late at night when no one was around. Seven months of cursing the day she was born, and was given the opportunity to leave her imprint on my skin.

Seven months of wishing I could erase my memory and say “yes” to those who waited in the dark for me to acknowledge their love. Seven months of pain.

By late autumn, I decided after much self-exploration and questioning that maybe there was such a thing as “never truly getting over a person.” I was finally accepting that pieces would remain missing within me and that life needed to keep moving.

It was at this time one Sunday afternoon that I was sitting with my best friend Ellen in her car, crying for the last time in each others arms of our past loves and hurt that my phone light up with an incoming message. I thought at first I had read the name wrong, but as soon as I took a better look I threw up.

Ellen in shock read the name and proceeded to try and find me (As I got out of the car and started walking). She read the message out-loud, and then stared at me with that WTF just happened look. It was simple and straight to the point.

It was an “I am sorry” note, and it left me numb and emotionless. I would be a liar if I said it wasn’t something I prayed for or that I did not care. I cared. I cared more then I was willing to admit or even wanted to feel.

Part of me hated her for all the pain she had caused me and the other just wanted to feel her skin under my hand, and more than anything I just wanted to know Why.

I think that is when reconciliation begun for me. When a door is open into a relationship we have many chooses.

The better part of me wanted to enter, leaving the door wide open so that I could leave at anytime. I took a step in her direction; remembering that my intentions are to always be true, to keep an open mind, and have boundaries not wall, and to never punish her for abandoning me.

Individuals are never broken and the human heart is never beyond repair, but when reconciling with anyone it takes all individuals in the relationship to want to do it.

Reconciliation is a goal and it requires a team to attain it; one person alone cannot do all the work nor is it fair.

Here are ten tips to help when starting the process of reconciliation:

  1. Start with friendship. When my ex came back into my life we made it clear that we would be friends.  We were so determined to regain trust for one another at that level that we waited over a month to physically see each other again. It was worth the wait!
  2. We gave each other permission to “ask anything and keep no secrets.” This came with an additional side note “please no details.” We also gave each other room to feel the anger and pain but express it appropriately when we were both calm and ready to listen.
  3. This is an absolute “no-no,” no yelling, screaming, name-calling, or threatening.  No harassing them by texting or calling multiple times! What is done is done, and if you are not willing to leave it in the past than you can forget about it ever working out in the future. Also, don’t play victim and use the past as a weapon, for example “you used to do this, you used to do that.”
  4. Set some rules and boundaries. Every once in awhile you have to set your limits. “There are certain things I cannot and will not be okay with, it’s not a secret and I don’t expect you to read my mind, so I will share them with you.”
  5. More boundaries. Everyone I have allowed in knows this well about me. I am open to everyone and anyone, but if you hurt me and I give you a chance and you waste it there is no more chances after that. I have learnt that people will not change if they don’t have too, so if you keep giving them chance after chance there really is no point in the person listening to you because they already know they will get away with it. I always forgive those who have hurt me and then I let them go with an open heart, e.g. “I wish all the love and happiness in the world, thank you for the time you shared with me.”
  6. Once you say you are ready to forgive, the work is on you in achieving it. Forgiveness comes from within so only you can make it happen.
  7. It takes two to make the wheels of a relationship move, therefore we all need to accept responsibility and fix the problem. Sometimes it’s not just about the other person that hurt us changing, but you included.  It can be hard work, as we may have to change are attitudes and actions. Think about counseling and therapy if there are too many bumps in the way.
  8. Don’t beg, that changes the power situation in a relationship and it make you feel like shit. You will not need to beg if you actions and intentions are true, she will be able to see them.
  9. Keep family and friends out of it. If you need to talk about it that is what we have the mental health profession for “unbiased trained individual to listen.” You don’t need anyone’s approval because if they say that they love you, than they should always be there to understand and support you. There are some who did not want my ex back in my life, but they were supportive enough to know to keep their mouths shut with their opinions and just spread the love (thank you, you are a true friend!).
  10. Always communicate calmly and rationally or you will only scare them and drive them away. Remember what brought you two together and why it’s worth fighting for, but do it the mature way!

Nothing is guaranteed in life we can only do as good as with what we have been given and understand.

I don’t know if this relationship will work out and I don’t care.

I only care that some things are too great to let go off and that a chance for a life of true happiness can be found when anger, jealousy, and distrust are left behind; and compassion and love have taken their place.…
