Housewife: Home-remaking in a Transgender Marriage
Kristin K. Collier, author
Kristin Collier and her husband struggle to decide whether and how to stay together after it becomes apparent to him that he is transgender. As her husband transitions to live the rest of his life as a woman, Collier leans into her garden, community, and new romantic interests while she transforms in her own right, evolving as a woman, mother, and housewife. With honesty, humor, and grounded in her practice of Compassionate Communication, Collier redefines homemaking as she and her former husband continue to live and parent as partners in the same household.
