Our expert says:
Being gay is generally not "a phase", though, as all humans are somewhere on a spectrum of sexual identity, somewhere between the extremes of totally heterosexual and totally homosexual, its not unusual for people, at varying ages, to experiment a bit.
In the party case, how do you know your informant was "spot on" ? Did the woman concerned confirm his opinion ? Why do you doubt that his wife could have been lesbian ( or, more probably, bisexual ) ? People don't "get gay". They may choose, for many different reasons, to express different aspects of their sexuality differently, at different stages of their life. Maybe after living with him for some years, she found the heterosexual component of her bisexuality less and less appealing ? He sounds rather bitter about it all, maybe understandably.
And by the way, a reasonable amount of proper research has found that just as being brought up in a heterosexual family ( after all, all homosexuals were ) doesn't guarantee that everyone will grow to be heterosexual, so being brought up with a pair of homosexual parents, seems to have no particular influence on the sexuality and gender identity of the children they may bring up.
Reminds me of the famous graffiti, where someone had written on a restroom wall : "MY mother made me a homosexual". Underneath, someone else had written : "How nice ! If I bought her the wool, would she knit me one, too ? "
