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.
