crazycool saidwhat do you think?
These terms are relative. We live in Florida, where Republicans have worked to prevent any possibility of gay marriage. So the term we commonly use is "partner" which we all understand here.
The word itself is unimportant to me. It could be husband, or anything else. Personally, I like husband.
But I know when I introduce my husband as my "partner" outside of our gay community, there might be some straights who think I mean he's my business partner. I wish I could legally call him my husband, and he the same for me.
But Republicans have seen to it this is illegal in Florida, and in US Federal law (DOMA). And yet there are some here who wonder why I hate Republicans, even though [GASP] I could agree with some of their economic positions. Well, just a few, not about their raping & pillaging the working middle class...
