Leading Man-Leading Woman. What’s the Relationship?

Filed under: On Writing — Frank Fiore @ 8:43 AM

Almost every novel has some kind of relationship going on between the leading man and the leading woman.  What was the relationship of your leading man and women in your last novel?

Take the poll.

  1. I tend to write ensemble novels. My first novel has three main characters, with two of them having a father/daughter relationship, although they aren’t related. The female lead does marry the other leading man.

    My second has a male/female lead with several important supporting characters. Both leads have love interests elsewhere, and are just friends with each other. Sort of. Actually, they don’t even meet until almost the end of the book.

    The third novel (if I can ever get the silly thing finished) has four main characters, and these folks (2 males/2 females) are in a polyamorous relationship. No, it’s not erotica, it’s science fiction, and in this world, group marriages are not unusual.
