Abstract

In this reply to the commentary on Frost and Gola (2015), I address three primary substantive themes raised across the authors’ responses, with particular attention to research on intimacy in same‐sex couples’ lives after the U.S. Supreme Court Decision in Obergefell v. Hodges: (a) the complexities inherent to between‐group comparisons of members of same‐sex and heterosexual couples; (b) the continued relevance of stigma in the relational experiences of same‐sex couples; and (c) the potential role of attachment in same‐sex couples’ experiences of stigma and intimacy.
