Very, very well put.
Pretty sure the OP Alex isn't going to see this but writing it in case it helps any one else who's come with the same questions. One thing to take into account with kids brought up in the group & their adult relationships is how much relocating they did. Without any stable community or friendships (others came & went frequently, or we relocated) to speak of, it's not easy to form deep bonds later later in life. For this issue you could read up on Third Culture Kids and loss. This also addresses the issue of having had no real childhood & how children of high-demand groups or TCKs often experience a delayed childhood. So this girl's questioning of her sexuality or lack-of could well be just that: she didn't have the option of exploring her real self until much later in life & she's doing so now in the safe environment of a caring relationship.
