Abstract:

Carren Strock fell in love with a woman after twenty-five years of a happy - and ongoing - marriage. Married Women Who Love Women describes her journey from denial to self-awareness of her sexuality, as well as the reactions of her husband, family and friends. By revealing her own personal experience, and also interviewing more than one hundred women, their husbands, and children, Strock shows that the phenomenon of married women loving women is not as uncommon as most of us might have believed.

Married Women Who Love Women addresses issues that have never been freely discussed before: Why do women turn to other women for emotional fulfillment? What would make a married woman cross that invisible line that tnrns her best friend into her lover? Why do some women struggle with identity while others easily embrace their sexuality? What do married women do when they realize that a large part of themselves has been missing? What kind of men are they married to? How are these women and their spouses coping? And finally, where do straight women fit in?
