As for this short story, Samantha Doyle is a fictitious psychiatrist who studies relationships. From Samantha Doyle:
"This story will deal with a non-sexual relationship between a male and female. These people love each other very much, similar to same gender male or female friends. No one seems to understand this different kind of love. This story is based on two patients and all the problems that have arisen because of being this way. The story is about a pastor, a jealous wife, an assistant co-worker and a husband who could not understand why his wife would need the companionship of another male if it were not sexual. There are many strong moments because it is possible for a relationship of this kind to evolve. The spiritual strength of the characters keeps it under control. For some, this type of relationship is always unacceptable but to deny a partner his friends is as or maybe more dangerous than letting the relationship persist."
