Josh Collins' and his ex-fiancee had a long history together — eight years long, to be exact — before he canceled their wedding and was vague about the reasons. We all know now that Josh is gay, and that was the reason all along!
For Carolyn Moos, though, it was a shock! Something she saw no signs of in the years they had been lovers!
"At the time I wanted reasons. I asked of him, 'Can you write some reasons down?' At the time he didn't know how to phrase it but he said, 'When I'm ready I'm going to back to you with the truth,' or something that wasn't tangible.
"[When he finally told me] he said, 'The only reason I never married you is because I'm gay.' What he shared with me never crossed my mind. You ask his parents, his twin brother, his teammates…They'll say the same thing."
It's gotta be an usual feeling to look back on an eight year relationship, simultaneously remembering all the love and good times mixed with the information known now. We can't even imagine!
On one hand, we would never want to rush someone into coming out before they were ready. On the other, after 8 years we feel like she was totally owed an explanation from the beginning!
In the end though, we hope they BOTH end up happy, with people they can love forever!
