"What's love got to do with it? Everything, according to Richard
Isay's informed and illuminating look at the role of romance in
modern gay life. I highly recommend this book for people of any
generation and partnership status."

"Richard Isay offers something far better than simple bromides
and false hope. In this book, he challenges us with a provocative,
illuminating, and ultimately hopeful look at ourselves and explains
how those of us who yearn to love and be loved (and who doesn't?)
can best find happiness and healing in a committed
--Eric Marcus, author of "The Male Couple's Guide and Together
"Many gay men (and others, too) are likely to find this book
exceptionally interesting and helpful. In a series of vividly
illuminating case histories and with a psychoanalyst's depth and
clarity of insight, Richard Isay lucidly explains why gay men have
particular difficulty in establishing and sustaining loving

Reasons of Love"
"Richard Isay's portrayals of gay men's lives are likely to be
controversial. Isay is not the stereotypical psychoanalyst who sits
quietly while his patients ramble--and we're all the better for
that. He has something to say and what he says is worth hearing.

--William Rubenstein, Founding Director of the Williams Institute
on Sexual Orientation Law and former Director of the ACLU Lesbian
& Gay Rights Project
"Based on Dr. Isay's three decades of experience working with
gay men in therapy, this is a deeply thoughtful study of the
difficulties gay men may experience with falling and staying in

some dark places along his own life's journey, but it will also
give him a glimpse of the self-affirmation and capacity for change
that are the goals of gay-positive psychotherapy."

"Gay people seek the freedom to marry for the same mix of
reasons as non-gay people, and for most, love and commitment are
central. Drawing on his exceptional expertise and decades of
stories from his patients, Richard Isay explores the challenges and
value of romantic love--how to overcome our pasts and enrich our
present lives at home--as we build a future of greater equality and
inclusion in society."
--Evan Wolfson, author of "Why Marriage Matters"
