There are certain preconceptions about these kinds of relationships, that the young woman is infatuated with or vulnerable to the strong, dominant male, and by today's standards there would be concern.

Does anybody know what kind of relationship and marriage Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart had? At nineteen, did she have the strength of personality to hold her own with him?

Lauren Bacall also wrote an autobiography By Myself
