partner II (English)

‹‹ Eerste ‹ Vorige Random Volgende › Laatste ››
1. i use 'my partner' to refer to my loved ones, especially at work
2. not fiance, husband, spouse, wife, registered partner, because your relationship status is often not relevant
3. and there is a lot of prejudice, just look at the amount of empathy you get, even 2 months later, when you say:
4. 'i am getting a divorce' versus 'my girlfriend and i broke up'. society places more value on marriage
5. ...and takes it more seriously, even when you are together with your girlfriend for 10 years
6. that's why i always refer to 'my partner', a neutral term that covers it all
