“We just broke up. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that we had three children so quickly.

“For six years there was always someone in the house in diapers. Our marriage has just faded.

“You realize that the person you wanted to spend your life with doesn’t want to be with you anymore, or with him. Suddenly it felt like walking through the house with tacks in your shoes. “

But after they split up, describing struggling with the idea that Melanie would one day meet another man, he said, “The realization cut me in half. I couldn’t stop the tears as I tried to put the guys on rubber boots. No man wants to cry in front of his sons, but it’s worse when you don’t know why you’re doing it. “

While they were separated and it was Melanie’s turn to look after her three sons, Bishop said he would “have a bottle of wine” and watch TV during the day.

He said, “I drowned out the pain of the only person I really loved who didn’t want me anymore.”

“The first time I saw Melanie, I knew she was the only one for me, and it still feels a little like that now,” he said.

After their wedding in 1993, John and Melanie welcomed their eldest son, Joe, the following year.

Luke was born in 1996, followed by Daniel in 1998.

Dedicated family man John has spoken publicly about his three boys on several occasions and delivered a powerful speech at the 2018 LGBT Awards that earned him a standing ovation.

John, named Ally of the Year at the ceremony, told the audience, “I was thrilled to be nominated. I brought my whole family, my wife and three sons, whom I love and of whom I am very proud.

“Like all parents, we have problems with them. One of my sons has a tattoo on his ankle that should be Africa, but what Australia looks like, one of my sons is mumbling and one of my sons is a gay man.

“I’ll be honest, there have been many nights where my wife and myself were put on and worried and worried and worried. What should we do if he doesn’t stop muttering? “
