Let’s not get married let’s just be partners

I’ve always been an LGBT ally, and I fully support marriage equality, but the more I think about it the more I like the idea of partnership over marriage.

I love the phrase “partners” because it says something to me that husband and wife, or husband and husband/wife and wife never can. It implies true equality, and that both people are invested in creating joy for and with each other.

  1. joe how did i miss this before!? i’m a big fan of the word ‘partner’ because of it’s gender neutrality and that it is representational of all relationships. my cousin used to always refer to his wife as ‘life-partner’ and i think that is where it stuck in my head. anyway … great minds think alike?? 😛
