I have a weird question.
I met my better half when at 17 and we’ve been together ever since. This year will mark our 13-year anniversary and I still don’t know what to call him when I talk about him to a new person. You see, we’re not married. I don’t want a wedding because I hate being at the center of attention and I don’t like the ceremony itself. So, I can’t call him a husband, although we live and behave as a married couple.
I can’t say he’s my boyfriend either, because I think we are looong past that point. He’s my family. Sometimes I refer to him as my partner, but it makes me feel as if we are FBI agents working together. So what should I call him?
I know we don’t have to label the people in our lives, but, for example, if no one knows the name of my sister I just say she’s my sister and there’s no need for further explanations. It makes things easier. So, I’m just wondering if you have any suggestions.
And since we’re at this topic today, let’s have a good laugh about being married.
Have a fun Friday with your spouse!
