Simon78928 saidI'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?
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!
