A Phenomenological Exploration of the Experiences of Dual-Career Lesbian and Gay Couples
O'Ryan, Leslie W.; McFarland, William P.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n1 p71-79 Win 2010
Dual-career lesbian and gay couples face unique struggles as they encounter relational and workplace discrimination. This phenomenological study explored how relationship and career intersect for lesbian and gay couples. Three themes emerged that described how couples successfully blended relationship and career: planfulness, creating positive social networks, and shifting from marginalization to consolidation and integration. The implications of these results are discussed regarding practice and research.
