Event: Relationship Myths
Date: 6th August 2007 (Monday)
Have you been to forums in which lesbian women share about their relationships? What have you heard?
Stories of difficult love and barriers galore… the search for family acceptance of oneself and partners… the average lesbian relationship is given 7 years. Long-lived relationships are barely heard of; the occasional decade-long ones are much revered and looked upon as mythical creatures.
How much of gender differences come into play in the dynamics of relationships? Is love really all it takes for “forever”? In this interactive talk, you will be introduced- from the eye of research literature- to what contributes to relationship longevity and satisfaction; what separates straight relationships from queer ones.
You will be surprised… for what you think isn’t always what is.
