Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

McDaniel corrals a vast amount of information on lesbian coupling in every sense--emotional, legal, and mundane. Citing the experiences of nine representative couples, she covers a large range of issues, each of which she addresses in the appropriate one of her book's nine parts: "Defining Ourselves," "Lesbians and Sex," "Living as Lesbians," "How We Do It" (i.e., becoming couples), "Living Together," "Parenting," "Power Issues," "Uncoupling," and "Going Long Term." In passing, she considers such essential concerns as sexual styles and safe sex; dealing with the closet; setting boundaries and creating rituals as part of bonding; the legalities of making a home and a life together; lovers who don't have sex; lesbian moms; race, class, body image, and disabilities; lesbian divorce; and aging within long-term relationships. Of necessity, McDaniel explores no single issue in great depth, so her guide may best serve as a jumping-off point for further examination, perhaps in the references and resources listed at the end of each major section.

Format: Paperback
As a lesbian in a relationship, I found the information in the book to be essential. It covered a wide array of topics of interest. I discovered new and important legal information as well as ideas that enhanced our relationship and intimacy. At times the book dragged and was a bit cumbersome, but I believe that was only when it did not pertain to my situation. I wouldn't pass this book up. As a matter of fact, I am buying another to give to a friend for her birthday!

Great book! Alot of thought and research was put into this. The chapters are well thought out and much needed as many books on lesbian relationships dont cover many of the topics and chapters as this one does. i said it is a must read for anyone!

By ellison on November 29, 2014
Format: Paperback
The author was raised in a Christian home and did not come out until she was 30. She had a Quaker commitment ceremony. There are nine chapters which are broken up into sub headings which include topic such as drinking, violence, child rearing, racism, seeking a donor to have child, and what to call each other--partner/lover.

She surveyed several couples and includes experiences from her own life. Insightful.
