In January, TLC will air a special titled My Husband’s Not Gay featuring three married Mormon couples in which the husband is, in fact, gay — as well as one single man who identifies as homosexual, but is actively seeking a wife.
In the preview of the first episode, one of the couples’ husbands says that “no marriage is perfect, and ours isn’t either — but we believe with our faith in God, we can overcome anything.” Another says that he’s “attracted to [his] wife for sure, but definitely attracted to men too.”
When one of the wives is asked whether her husband a homosexual, she replies, “I get a little defensive when somebody calls my husband gay” — even though earlier in the video, her husband admitted that he was primarily attracted to men.
The phenomenon of gay Mormon men marrying women is not new. In 2012, family therapist Josh Weed used the occasion of his 10th wedding anniversary to announce that he was now, and had always been, a gay man.
“One of the sad truths about being homosexual is that no matter what you decide for your future, you have to sacrifice something,” he wrote. “It’s very sad, but it is true. I think this is true of life in general as well.”
Because of the depth of his faith in the Mormon Church, his sacrifice would be pursuing sexual and romantic relationships with men. “I wanted to raise children that were biologically the product of me and the one I love,” he wrote.
“Thankfully, [his wife] Lolly was willing to marry me, and we found ourselves able to conceive children.”
The TLC special will air in January.

WATCH: Saturday Night Live airs Christmas special — that’s just one giant dig at the Electoral College
NBC's "Saturday Night Live" aired an opening skit that was just one giant attack on the electoral college.
A snowman introduced the segment, saying that we could look in on the holiday table conversation thanks to hacked Nest cams.
The skit featured a house in San Francisco, California, a second in Charleston, South Carolina and a third in Atlanta, Georgia.
Each dinner table debated impeachment, and the differences between President Donald Trump and his predecessor, President Barack Obama.
But then the snowman said that none of their votes matter.
"They'll debate the issues all year long, but then it all comes down to 1,000 people in Wisconsin who won't even think about the election until the morning of," the snowman said. "And that's the magic of the Electoral College."
Georgia mayor being recalled for racism resigns from office: report

‘You can say Merry Christmas again’: Lara and Eric Trump declare victory in the War on Christmas
For years, conservatives have complained about a "War on Christmas" -- but President Donald Trump finally won the war, according to his son and daughter-in-law.
Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro interviewed Eric Trump and his wife Lara in Trump Tower, which Pirro called the "New York White House."
Pirro told the two they had "done wonderful things for the country" and said Trump had ended political correctness and people could say "Merry Christmas."
"You can say Merry Christmas again," Lara Trump said. "Isn't that so nice, Jeanine?"
"It's incredible," Eric Trump said. "It is nice to say Merry Christmas again."
