|"How do you heal after something like that happens to you?" A reporter from a D.C. area television station joins the Q & A session following the July screening of "I Thought It Was Forever."|
It is a creative and compelling true story about love, marriage, happiness, forgiveness and adultery. In "I Thought It Was Forever," seven people boldly share the reality of a spouse having a secret gay life. "We were just being our heads against a marriage that wasn't going to work," says Lorraine, one of the women featured in the film. Audience members will cry, cheer, laugh and empathize as real people put a spotlight on the possibility of loving or loathing someone who promised to love, honor and cherish them until death. "I questioned everything and wondered how I could do this to the woman who was the most beautiful woman on the earth, except for my mother," says Marc, Lorraine's ex-husband.
