In searching for a guide to lesbian wedding planning, my partner-to-be and I encountered this book at the local glbt bookstore. We were both sadly disappointed by the lack of up-to-date information and the antiquated nature of the content. Perhaps due to the time period in which the book was written, many of the women were estranged from their families and seemingly on the fringes of society. We had difficulty identifying with any of them. A more current version is desparately needed!

Too many lesbians in the US live under precisely the conditions that the women in this book experienced. Those of us privileged to have civil marriage need to remember our past, these women who were willing to step forward and insist on recognition of the value of our commitments. In 2014 there are lesbians widows banned from a partner's funeral, lesbian moms banned from the kids they didn't biologically produce, lesbians shut out of workplaces and experiences. These stories are not antiquated; it is only that some of us have the privileges that none of us had two decades ago. This is where lesbians can go to remember who we've been, even as we take home those legal marriage licenses (in the tiny number of places where we can do it)
