: I don't want to say juvenile, but its so NOT what we are. I have been with the guy five years. We had a union ceremony at Kings Dominion and a honeymoon in California. Boyfriends are the guys I went out with for a few months, not that there were that many.
: But until the laws change, he isn't my husband. So I call him my life partner. Partner for short. I dont say life partner cause that sounds too sappy, although thats what I feel most of the time talking about him. It just seems to make more sense then calling him my boyfriend. Although we still pass IM's back and forth in class.
We honeymooned there, and it's beautiful, but it rains almost every day.
I love commitment ceremonies. Swear, I would have married a woman if she asked me to have a commitment ceremony because I was so afraid of having a wedding. Weddings can strangle the love out of people.
I adopted the best out of my friend's ceremonies, and let my grandma call the court referee "reverend," and it went ok.
I hope you get to be married soon. In the meantime, Minnesota is not a bad place for domestic partners. The insurance company I work for lets you carry your partner on your insurance, which I guess is rare. Slowly, but surely, the world will catch up to reality.
