Cavedwaller, by Dorothy Allison

"I won't marry you, Nolan," Dede said. "I love you. No lie and I'll live with you. But I won't marry you. I won't marry no one."

In reply, Nolan put his mouth over hers and kissed her. His hands stroked her shoulders and slid down to caress her back. "Dede Windsor, you are the most difficult woman I ever met, worse than my mama. And you know damn well I'd rather live in sin with you than be carried off to heaven with any other woman in the world. Only thing you need to know is that I will want to be a real daddy to this child."
