This chapter offers a broad survey of existing research on trans individuals and partnerships conducted across the disciplines and professions of counseling, family studies, medicine, psychology, social work, sociology, and women’s and gender studies, with the goal of assessing and distilling factors associated with the stability and instability of relationships in which at least one of the members is trans. This chapter also provides an assessment of key sources of support and strain for trans partnerships as identified by researchers or that deserve further research exploration. Finally, the authors identify a number of researcher assumptions and biases that may cloud the interpretation of some research findings and outcomes in trans people’s partnerships, suggesting avenues for further focus in clinical practice and research.
