She lived fairly openly with her lover George Henry Lewes, home she considered her husband though he was married to another woman (they had an open marriage). It was one factor in her using a pen name, given how scandalous at the time such a relationship was. She supported abolition of slavery, aiding the poor, feminism, Irish home rule and religious skepticism through essays in the left-wing ''Westminster Review''. She was briefly married to John Walter Cross in her last year of life.
