Should I come out at work?

I'm an attorney on a contract document review job, and have been on this job eight weeks, but it could last a year. I have been out since high school, have a partner of 30 years (not married yet) and a nine year old daughter we jointly adopted. At first it didn't seem necessary to come out; I was working alone and questions or conversation never came up. But now I am part of a smaller team of three, where we are beginning to share personal information, such as health care plans, ex-wives, etc. One guy is a middle-age conservative but funny and reads Drudge, and other is a down-to-earth young woman. I think my team will be ok but I wonder about word getting out, and what the bosses on the project might think or if they'd treat me differently. There is no one out that I know of; out of about 100 on the project I am acquainted with about a dozen. And every guy that has pinged so far has a wife! But if personal conversations continue I will have to either come out or be vague or just plain lie, which I haven't done before and am not used to.
