“historians have long debated the nature of the boston marriage. Were these two women roommates? A couple? In love?” The short works of fiction in rose jean’s and they were roommates cover the storied lesbian tradition of common-law marriages, from 19th-century new england to 1970s japanese yuri to modern-day uhaulers in montreal.
