Lesbian couples tend to face more challenges in their relationships than straight couples. From trying to win the approval of their friends and family to settling down and starting a family, there are struggles for an unconventional couple. Fortunately, society has been more accepting of same-sex relationships in recent years, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t hurdles.
Similarly to other lesbian couples, two women from Seattle, Washington, used the artificial insemination method to have kids and build a family. When they finally had their daughters, they thought everything was worth it. They were so happy for a while, and couldn’t ask for anything more. Unfortunately, the two eventually split. Over ten years later, one of the women realized why she had to go through all that heartbreak.
