Betty and Jeff Waite and their 20-something sons gather a couple times a month for a meal. On a recent Sunday afternoon, 56-year-old Betty served up a platter of bacon, French toast, orange juice and coffee at a family brunch.
The Waites say they were happily married for 17 years. Before their divorce, they were raising their three boys in suburban Cincinnati, when Jeff told Betty he was questioning his sexuality.
"I went into the marriage very determined not to be gay," he says. "I wanted children. I wanted a traditional life."
But Jeff is gay and the news shocked Betty. She loved her husband.
