Before considering divorce or break-up for a committed gay relationship, it is always a good idea to try counselling. Most marriage counsellors also offer counselling services to gay and lesbian couples who have been in a committed relationship and are considering gay divorce. Most resources that target married couples who are going through a troubled period recognize that a committed gay relationship is equal to heterosexual marriage, so look out for those counselling centers and relationship resources.
Many therapists will include marriage counselling in their list of specialities. If you wish to discuss your relationship problems without your partner, keep in mind counselling hotlines. These are a good resource to access support if you have an immediate need, and there are many gay or lesbian-specific numbers.
