Jeff Rohrer, a former linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys, has come out as gay, and announced he plans to marry his partner this weekend.

Rohrer, who played for the NFL from 1982 to 1989, announced earlier this week his marriage to skincare magnate Joshua Ross. After they are wed, Jeff will be the first NFL player to be in a same-sex relationship.

Rohrer's six seasons (his final was spent sidelined with an injury) with the Cowboys saw him starting 41 games, dishing out 7.5 sacks, and making four fumble recoveries. Since his football days, Rohrer has become an executive producer/partner for a commercial production company.

People have been responding positively.



In an interview with TIME, Rohrer said,

"If I had told the Dallas Cowboys in the 1980s that I was gay, I would have been cut immediately. It was a different world back then, people didn't want to hear that."

But people are more welcoming now.

"I've given at least five people heart attacks with this news. But for the most part, many of my closest friends, including some of my former teammates with the Cowboys, could not have been more happy and supportive."

Everyone is congratulating their impending nuptials.










There were some who tried to downplay this great news, but they were quickly shot down.

Rohrer met Joshua at a bar in West Hollywood, and the two have been dating since. Even though he was still living with his ex-wife at the time, Rohrer knew he wanted to see Ross. This is a joyous time for a man who described hiding his feelings as living like the Wolfman.

"My experience is that people are born gay, and anyone who wants to dispute that I'd be happy to have a conversation with them, including Mike Pence. I'd love to sit down with him."

While Rohrer will be the first former NFL player to marry a same sex partner, he is not the first to come out of the closet. Seven other players, including Michael Sam and Esera Tuaolo, have come out of the closet since their time with the NFL. As of this writing, there's no recorded case of an out current NFL player.

Rohrer and Ross will be married this Sunday at a ceremony in Southern California.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
