Christian Mom Blogger Marries Her Soccer Star Girlfriend After Separating From Husband
Popular Christian blogger Glennon Doyle Melton has tied the knot with her soccer star girlfriend Abby Wambach. Her gay relationship has been shrouded in controversy, since she split from her husband in August of last year. "We are a modern, beautiful family," she wrote at the time. "Our children are loved. So loved. And because of all of that love, they are brave. When Craig and I sat them down to tell them about Abby I started by saying: 'In our family, we live and tell the truth about who we are no matter what, and then love each other through it -- and I’m about to show you how that’s done.'"
Now, she has opened up about her new found love. "When I fell in love with Abby, I was scared. I thought that my fear might be bigger than my courage, and that because of that size difference, I might miss out on my chance at happiness," she wrote on Facebook.
"I have lived a long while learning from pain, it's been a good teacher.
I'm forty one, now. And I'm graduating to joy.
I choose joy.
You can, too.
Your courage is bigger than your fear.
G (Ms. Doyle-Wambach if you're nasty)."
"My beloveds - please never give up on love. Life could surprise the hell out of you," Doyle wrote on her Instagram page. "Trust me - you might just wake up one morning and find yourself smack dab in the middle of heaven. I love my wife. LOVE WINS."
