Publisher Comments:

When Greg Louganis wanted to tell his story, he turned to Eric Marcus, who then coauthored the #1 New York Times bestseller Breaking the Surface. When it was time to tell the story of the half-century gay rights struggle, both the famous and the long-forgotten trusted Eric Marcus to tell of their experiences in the award-winning Making History. Now, in Together Forever: The Gay Marriage, Eric Marcus takes us into the lives of forty couples — divided evenly between men and women — who have been together for at least nine and as many as fifty years. From the high desert of southern California to the cliffs of northern New Jersey, Eric Marcus tells the stories of this diverse group of people who have welcomed him into their modest apartments, comfortable houses, and double-wide trailers.

Together Forever examines how these couples have successfully built happy, fulfilling lives. We learn how they met, how they've overcome their differences, survived through the rough spots, and stood up to the outside pressures and antigay prejudices that continue to threaten them. We see the couples' surprisingly close and at times estranged relationships with their families, children, grandchildren, neighbors, and colleagues. And, finally, we understand that a gay marriage is just as viable as any other — messy, complex, and inestimably rewarding.

Not just the first comprehensive look at gay marriage from the ground up, this is the kind of rewarding and compulsively readable nonfiction that can truly cross boundaries. And, as the debate over this highly controversial issue rages on, Together Forever will be a must-read for gay men and lesbians — as well as the friends and families struggling tosupport them.
