Word of the Gay: "Lavender Marriage"

A "lavender marriage" is a marriage of mixed sexual orientation. Sometimes one partner is gay or lesbian while the other spouse is straight, and some are marriages of convenience where the husband is gay and the wife is a lesbian.

This is one I've not heard before. I have heard 'Mixed Orientation Marriage'. They can work, as long as everyone is honest and aboveboard about what it is.
