This reminds me of an incident years ago with a co-worker of mine and her husband. He was tge typical he-man, hard drinking construction worker. She came home one day to find him passed out drunk dressed in her clothes. He said he was trying them on as a Halloween costume....yeah, good try.

Their marriage didnt last for more than a couple of years after that

I personally wouldn't care if my spouse was a cross dresser, as long as he didn't take my clothes. Too many years of fighting over clothes with my sister...

I've known cross dressers who were not gay, it's just a fetish that they practice at home, get dressed up, parade in front of the mirror, get excited by being dressed up, etc.

Perhaps the wife knows.

Not all marriages are alike.

I have a female friend who is married and her husband is a cross dresser. He likes to get dressed up and go out every now and then. She is totally cool with it.

You're saying it was the cross-dressing and not the drinking that was the marriage killer?

I would absolutely mind my own business. And, I wouldn't judge.

I probably would not want to be married to a man who is a cross dresser, but I suspect that a wife would figure out pretty quickly on her own that something was going on. Where does hubby stash all those gorgeous clothes and make-up? How does he explain the times he vanishes when he's on a shopping spree of off performing at clubs around town? What excuse does he give for shaving his legs? And what about when he arrives home, the scent of perfume wafting in along with him? And it must be a real nuisance to put on and take off those fake fingernails all the time.

Leave it. Your friend has plenty of problems as it is.
proclivities??
