    I'm just curious, when you guys have married as your relationship status does that mean you are legally married to a man, woman, or either. Or do some of you put that as your status even if it is not considered legal but you view your relationship in that fashion?

    If I end up in a relationship that lasts longer than 3 years I'll put married.

    Do you know how long that is in gay years?!icon_eek.gif

    I believe 1 straight year = 1 gay month week


    Thats it? I thought any amount of time multiplied by 3 = gay time spent together or apart? icon_neutral.gif

    I'm legally married to Bill.

    We married in 2009 after 20 years together.

    Dec 13th, 1989 we made illegal and private vows to each other.

    I plan to live as long as any straight man therefore:

    one gay year = one straight year

    Don't know why you would want to spend less time with the man you love.

    I cannot marry my partner in the right-wing red Republican US State of Florida. But privately we afford each other the same consideration of a legally married couple, even if not officially recognized.

    We have drawn various legal documents to insure most of those mutual rights. But they are still less than what legitimately married couples enjoy. And even then Florida would like to invalidate & disregard our agreements, as has happened in several notorious cases in the last few years, that even drew the attention & action of President Obama (the Federal remedy still blocked by Republicans in the US Congress).

    I cannot legally list our status as married. I do call my partner my husband in nonofficial situations, but that has no legal meaning. In Florida we are afforded nothing more than roommate status. YAY Republicans! Let's vote for more of them! icon_razz.gif

    I've wondered about this same thing myself. I can't always figure out if "married" in a profile means married to a guy or married to a woman but fooling around on the side. I guess it doesn't really matter to me since they'd be off limits to matter what.

    I'd consider myself married to a guy if we were committed to each other for the rest of our lives. I don't need a piece of paper to validate that (although I want legalized gay marriage for other reasons).
