What Would You Call Your Significant Other?
Me and my "significant other", "life partner", mate, lover, best friend, etc. have been living together for the past 5 years. We do not have any plans to ever marry. We have both been married twice before and choose to be together without that piece of paper. We are very happy and it has been working out great for us. My question is what to call each other when introduced to other people? We are not simply boyfriend and girlfriend - we had a commitment ceremony with our closest family and friends. We are "married" to one another in our minds and our hearts. We share a home, finances, etc.
Could you call each other 'best friend?' It seems that might be the closest thing to what you have, not counting the bedroom aspect.
Baby Cakes. Mostly Baby Cakes. Sometimes it's hunny (like Winnie the Pooh). I once used snookums and it went over like a lead balloon. And sweetie never passed my lips.
I don't think most people would care what you call yourselves.
Whatever feels comfortable for you is all that matters.
I've had long term relationships where I lived with a significant other in the past and I've aways introduced them by their first name or as my girlfriend. Commitment has very little to do with "titles". People who are married cheat as much as those who supposedly practicing monogamy. In some ways the term "life partner" seems more serious than "wife" or "husband". No one wants to walk around admiting they have an "ex life partner". You only get one "life partner"

Have you ever caught a partner (wife/husband/Life Partner) in a significant lie?Now I don’t mean cheating I mean a lie like hitting a poll with the car then saying you found it that way. Or do you think that any deceit is a betrayal to the partnership?

How did you meet your spouse or life partner?I will go first. I did the online dating thing in my 20s and 30s because I don't go to clubs or bars. I met my hubby on okcupid. We were shocked to learn we lived less than a mile from each other. We were only friends in the beginning. Then about a...
