Abstract
In this book, Sarah Smith Rainey examines the subject of care between couples consisting of a disabled person and a nondisabled person, focusing on the nature of care in loving and sexual relationships. Rainey illustrates that the bulk of existing research posits care as a burden most often placed on women and that caring of disabled people is portrayed as stressful, and more often than not, a major factor in relationship disillusion. Rainey asserts that in many cases care between disabled/nondisabled couples offers a profound aspect of intimacy that enables relationship resilience.
