In this groundbreaking book, eminent gay psychiatrist and author Dr. Richard Isay discusses why and how gay men need romantic love in a committed relationship-while explaining the difficulty many have finding or maintaining it. While illuminating the psychology of gay men, Isay shows how they can overcome the obstacles to developing fulfilling, committed relationships and how romantic love can take hold with gay couples. Isay discusses how open relationships, once considered the norm in the gay world, can lead to problems-and tells what to do about them. Filled with fascinating real-life stories, Commitment and Healing is both a powerful testament to the benefits of romantic love for gay men and an uplifting guide to finding, sustaining, and nurturing love.
