I can. And in fact, the relationship takes center stage in BLADE and SCOURGE, but it won't affect their readability if I answer this now.

Gunedwaen and Harwing were lovers.

Marriage in the Fortunate Lands (aka Jer-a-kaliel, or "Land of the Strong Hearted") is about making alliances and creating a line of succession. For the second reason, it's almost always between men and women, but other love relationships do exist, can be formalized, and are also legal contracts allowing for the transmission of property. For some reason, I cannot easily locate the name of Dendinirchiel Ulillon's Consort Prince, but something that never made it into even the first draft is that their marriage was purely a matter of alliances, and not her first by any means, and he occupied his time with a succession of [male] favorites.

Whether same-sex Soulbonds are possible is something I will not know until the information appears in a story, but I can state that they are unknown to the people of Vieliessar's time, for whatever that is worth.

Possibly more than you want to know...
