Stepping Off the Relationship Escalator: Uncommon Love and Life
By Amy Gahran
Love is not one-size-fits-all, yet people often assume that healthy, serious relationships all must follow the same basic path. The "Relationship Escalator" is society's bundle of customs for intimate relationships: monogamy, living together, marriage and more, ideally until death do you part. Beyond this, it might not be obvious what your options are.
This book will help you:
- Discover less common relationship options that might suit you
- Understand why and how people have unconventional relationships
- Empower you to negotiate about how your relationships work
- Overcome the fear that loving differently means you're doing it wrong
- Make the world a friendlier, safer place for more paths to love
Featuring real stories and insights from hundreds of people, Stepping Off the Relationship Escalator explores consensual non-monogamy, love without living together, deep connections that pause and resume, and much more. The first in a series of research-based books, this introduction to relationship diversity is both accessible and surprising.
