This is a pretty middle-of-the-road, calm person's guide to relationships. As in, not going into the nitty gritty stuff, but suggesting counseling if you have nitty gritty stuff. It does provide a good overview of issues that come up with lesbians throughout the span of a relationship. I've gone back to it a few times to review the section on boundaries.
Absolutely awesome book that specializes in the intricacies of women's relationships and the strong desire to retain individuality while being in long-term committments with their partners. Good examples of life experiences are given. Highly recommended to those just coming out or wanting to understand relatioships in a healthy, positive way.
It's actually a guide to all relationships, not just lesbian ones. I read this book shortly before I got together with my wife. When we got together I gave it to her to read, but she never did! We're still on year 8, so I guess it's not ABsolutely necessary to have read it, but maybe it is necessary for one of the two.
