    1) You're both too lazy to have sex, even though you know that you probably won't sleep well without it.

    2) You'd rather cuddle than have sex. See number 1.

    3) You're unwilling to throw the frisbee, knowing full well that he'll get over it in five minutes, even though you didn't have sex the night before. See number 1 again.

    4) You're both well aware that sometimes it's better that he doesn't come to that work function with you.

    5) When you go to his work function, you're more worried about embarrassing him if you get drunk and make an ass of yourself than you are about embarrassing yourself. See number 4 again.

    6) You really wish that he'd be willing to play monopoly, poker, cards or strategy board games, so that it wouldn't take time away from him when you put together a group of people to do those things.

    ....when you are both laying in bed watching TV...realize that it is past 10pm...and comment on how late it is getting and how you both need to get to sleep.

    Hot Friday night!

    ...when you automatically replace all of the "I"s in your sentences with "we"s.

    "We are going to go..."

    "...and then, we tried out..."

    "...but we don't know if we can..."

    Honestly, I'm not using the "Royal We"

    ...you get excited because your partner put his own dishes away.

    ...you get surprised when he offers to do the laundry or another chore without making you feel like a nag for mentioning it.

    Hahahaha - last year, towards the end of baseball season, my father-in-law called me and we talked a good 20 minutes about the Red Sox. The conversation ended and I hung up the phone.

    My husband looks at me and says, "My own father hung up the phone without wanting to talk to me?" I burst out laughing - I hadn't even realized.

    - When your mom calls and thinks it is your partner that answered the phone.

    - When you would rather cuddle in front of the TV watching a chick flick on Friday night then go out dancing.

    - When you start declaring your partner as a common law spouse as a way of reducing your tax burden.

    - When you discuss where you want to live in retirement and what kind of dog you are going to get.

    I could go on for hours.

    When you are getting dressed to go out and you both are dressed in the same outfit. Different color but the same.

    When you come home from work and he is cooking exactly what you were thinking about all day.

    When your sister calls and her first question is how is he?

    When people call and they can't tell which one you are!

    When people call you by your spouse name or combine your names into Ric&Steven when refering to one or both of you.

    You show up ANYWHERE by yourself and the first question from EVERYONE is, "Hey, where's your husband/partner/whatever?"

    You no longer feel it’s necessary to close the door when you pee.

    You kiss your spouse first thing in the morning without bothering to brush your teeth first

    If some flatulence flies out, you no longer get embarrassed.

    Sweat pants and a T-shirt count as an outfit during the weekend.

    You dream in color.

    You’ve put a curse on your S.O. for forgetting to take out the garbage for the hundredth time.

    You are the proud owner of actual furniture (and it’s not a futon or something inflatable or something made of beans).

    You find yourself humming more often.

    You’ve had at least one silly argument about something like leaving the cap off the toothpaste.

    ...when people call you by each other's name, and when they get embarrassed you shrug and say , "It's OK; we're interchangeable."

    ...when others are completely at a loss listening to you converse with each other because half the conversation is body language and facial expression.

    ...when lovemaking can be reduced to 10 minutes because you so expertly know each other's body that you can make each other have a bright twanging climax, ready or not. (very handy when the urge hits and company's about to arrive.)

    ...when you also know the exact second to halt whatever you're doing to prolong the agony/pleasure of teetering on the verge of said climax.

    ....when you catch yourselves telling others you're joined in holy mortgage.

    I just went on vacation with my boyfriend and my ex-wife. I think they liked each other better than they like me, and one night we all played board games with a couple lesbians.

    I'm so doomed.

    HAH!! So true! My nieces and nephews used to think we had the one name 'Chrisandpaul'.

    When your turn up somewhere by yourself and everyone's first questions is 'Where's Paul?', even the 3-year-olds icon_smile.gif

    when you go on holiday with their extended family.

    when you pluck their ear-hairs for them.

    When you have conversations like this:

    "Honey? Have you seen my"
    "It's on the table in the dining room"

    watching tv
    "Oh, I know her. Wasn't she on the show with that guy?"
    "Nope, that's not her."
    "Are you sure? She had the hair?"
    "Nope, you're thinking of that other actress, the one on that other show."
    "Oh yeah, you're right."
