    Renewable sources would currently be unable to provide enough energy for the whole population. Alongside our unreliable weather, my concern is that we'd struggle to effectively provide energy to the whole of the UK. That's why I support the use of nuclear energy until we are able to effectively switch to renewable sources.
    We could still do a lot more renewable energy, and more energy conservation.

    It was awkward enough beforehand, as he was staying next door to me, with my gay neighbour. See where this is going yet?

    He turned up at my front door earlier, telling me he couldn't pretend to be something he wasn't. He introduced my gay neighbour as his lover, the man with whom he cheated on me. I was taken aback; I always had my suspicions that he was bisexual, however he all but admitted he used me.

    In a moment of outrage, I screamed homophobic slurs and slammed the door. I regret making the homophobic remarks, for I'm in no way homophobic.

    Oh dear. You are in rather a sticky situation. I hope he didn't leave you simply because of that?

    Sounds fair enough, I wouldn't regret it imo! A few words don't make you homophobic.

    Just like enjoying a few drinks doesn't make one an alcoholic.

    He sure did. I was his beard until he had the courage to leave me for a man.

    I'm sure you now understand that I'm going through a very stressful time.

    I really do understand why you are stressed - it must be a dreadful thing to have to go through.

    By the sounds of it, you're feeling betrayed, upset, and presumably like your marriage was a sham (since he is gay). If so, it's understandable that you've said some awful things - you're in shock and upset and it doesn't make you a homophobe. He'll be getting a lot of support from people as he comes out, but you need support as well given what you've gone through - surround yourself with your friends and take the time to move on. It'll take time, but you can do it.

    I understand that it must have been difficult for him to come out, and I understand that he can't change who he is, but I'm hurting right now. I need to keep myself busy, or else I'll keep replaying every moment.

    I suppose it was my punishment for marrying young. I've decided that it might be best to stay with my mum for a while, as I can't live next door to them at the moment.

    I understand that it was difficult for him to come out, but I don't understand why he wanted to marry me when he could have found a man to marry.

    Haha, it might be best to take myself away from there for a while.

    No, it's not your punishment and you've done nothing wrong at all (marrying young is not a crime) - make sure that you remember that every time you're feeling low. Living next door to them will only exacerbate your feelings and remind you that they're together. You don't need that so living with your mum would be a good idea and ensure that you have the support you need.

    It will take time to process why he wanted to marry you, perhaps he felt attracted to you and his feelings have changed over time, who knows? It's worth asking him when you've begun to move on, to get that closure you need, but for now, focus on you.
