Gay, lesbian and bisexual expert
Thanks for your posting. You state that you know you're bisexual, but are trying to stay hetero. This sounds like a contradiction. If you're bisexual, how would you try to 'remain' straight? It seems as if you're yearning to be with a woman, but that you're concerned about your ex-boyfriend's response and the custody of your children.
I think you should stop looking at this from a relationship perspective, and rather get some clarity on your sexual orientation. Once you've established whether you're more emotionally and sexually attracted to men or women at this point in your life, you can begin to think about the relationship issue.
Your ex boy-friend cannot have custody of your children taken from you purely on the grounds of your sexual orientation. There's no reason to live a false life. By being content with yourself, you'll be a better mother to your kids.
