Thanks for asking! As the spouse of a trans person who came out 22 years & 3 kids into the relationship, I am well-equipped to answer this. Allow me to demonstrate the repercussions in this thread - with photos!
So my spouse came out as trans. Initially, it was a big shock and there were tears and a lot of conversations.

Not all relationships survive transition, so we worked hard - for us and our kids - to stay afloat. She left room for my feelings and I left room for hers.
Here’s us after our lives were “shattered”!
Here’s us renewing our vows after my “husband was taken away from me”(?!)
Here are 3 of our now 4 kids (we’re currently in the process of adopting a teenager into our completely shattered family). As you can see, they’re clearly unhappy.
Here’s us dysfunctionally enjoying a family vacation as a family with 2 trans people in it.
And one more of my wife and I, just to show my complete misery since she started living as her authentic self. (This is us on Saturday, heading out to a bachelorette party.)
Wow. That was all very personal & traumatic, so I’m going to go back to my broken life & shattered dreams.

Which includes marinating steak for dinner, watching a movie with the kids & chilling the wine for when my wife gets home from work.
