Domestic Partnership

Just saw a friend update their facebook status to "now in a domestic partnership"
His response (as a gay man) was "finally a proper name for it"
I couldn't resist thinking -- totally a proper name.

And really who wants a marriage when you could have a domestic partnership. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I want a same sex partner, not that there's anything wrong with that (thank you Seinfeld).
I'm just saying I was in a marriage for years that was not a domestic partnership. (hits self on head, as light bulb illumines above) That's why I was miserable so often.

I want a partner!

  1. A friend of mine was just saying something like this about her relationship. Lately she has felt like she and her boyfriend are just sort of living their different lives in the same house. She told me, "I don't want to live next to somebody- I want to SHARE my life with somebody!"
