Homosexual and Conjugal Trajectories within a Lesbian Population

Céline Costechareire

In France, while research centered on heterosexual couples is very much on the increase, female homosexuality and lesbianism are still too rarely studied. However, work on the forming and behaviour patterns of lesbian couples is particularly amenable to heuristic research. Such studies demonstrate the importance of envisaging homosexuality and conjugal relationships in terms of trajectory and process. With this in mind, the present article attempts to bring out the connections between a homosexual lifestyle and a spousal lifestyle, between a homosexual and a conjugal trajectory within a lesbian population.
