Why did Ethel want a divorce / seperation?

I recently watched this TVF for the first time since its' premiere showing back in 1978. I think the scene was edited where Ethel tells Frank she wants to end the marriage..."I'd understand if it were another woman." Frank says: "I wish I were dead."
Why? Was he gay? Anyone know what this scene was about? Thanks.


Yes, he was gay.
