    I was on another site and I noticed that I still had my relationship status as "single" This site gave several choices for relationship status. For the sake of keeping this short I'll just stick with the two that have me baffled. What is the different truthfully between "Partnered" vs "Married." The "Better Half," as I like to call him, have been together for a little over 6 months. It's sad but this is the longest relationship I've been in and it's going great as of now. I didn't want to just put that I was "Dating Someone" for my relationship status, that seems so non-commited. We haven't gotten "married" yet i.e. no ceremony with family and friends but would be considered "Partnered?" What do you think?

    It's been only 6 months, if you were married that would be really stupid.
    Partnered is fine.

    partnered is what you call it when you can't get a legal marriage, but you would if you could.

    Most have a boyfriend / girlfriend tag, partnered is the more serious term.

    The two of you need to define your commitment together and announce it to the world, rather than ask others to define it for you.

    If you just ask me, I say it won't last a year. Jk!!!icon_razz.gif

    Six months and you are just now changing your status?

    Thinking: "dating one special guy" or "coupled"...

    calibro saidpartnered is what you call it when you can't get a legal marriage, but you would if you could.


    This.

    Partner, till it's legal here, than we'll swing by a court house and put signatures at the bottom of a piece of paper, confirming the hetro-normative meaning of our rings.
    Although, I have been calling him my husband lately--maybe I can't wait?
