I have an amazing family who will support me and my wife but how did you tell? I'm going to go out on a limb and say that there probably isn't a right time per se, although maybe not around Christmas or any major anniversaries etc might be best to avoid? Other than that, I think that you just need to sit down with her and be as open and honest as you have been with us and tell her.

Sex advice on how to explore bisexuality in a heterosexual marriage.
You've had your suspicions. Maybe your normal sexual appetite is considered by your mate to be excessive, or your spouse doesn't want to have anything to do with you sexually and acts repulsed by sexual activity. Maybe your partner becomes more and more secretive and moody and you notice him or her looking at people of the same sex in a different way. As your world turns upside down, and as your partner comes out, you find yourself reeling. You feel alone, isolated and ashamed. Mixed orientation couples are those in which one member in a relationship is either gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered.
I grew up in a more conservative family, in a conservative community in rural Ohio. The gays were strange, other people. My family was homophobic in a quiet way. But I knew gay people were different, and I knew they were different in a bad way. When there was, it was flamboyant, problematic or just queerness alluded to.
