IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU: Living with a Transsexual Spouse or Partner

Elisabeth L. Morrissey


Your husband tells you he’s transsexual.
Do you drop him like a hot rock? Could it possibly work out? Read this book!

Includes: the transsexual process, talking to others, assessing your relationship, finding therapists, maintaining your marriage, jealousy, helping your children adjust, and more. Also for the woman who falls in love with a transsexual.

It's not all about him. It's about you.



Elisabeth Morrissey learned a lot as a volunteer for several years at the Gender Identity Center of Colorado, a transgender support organization, and from her twenty-five year marriage to a male-to-female transsexual. She is otherwise a homemaker and support system for her spouse, Karen.
