I asked my coworker about this because they had a marriage ceremony but she still calls her ‘partner’.  I’m like why don’t you call her your ‘wife’ then and she said because it’s not legal and so it sticks out more and might raise awareness.  But I was thinking if she just said ‘wife’ people would more likely to put a face to gay marriage and be more accepting.  I donno but I agree with Miss Manners.

Though I call my husband partner as well.  I just like the term better 🙂

Awesome. And I agree with troubled – I think there’s something even more powerful about someone in a same-sex couple referring to their lifetime SO as “wife” or “husband”. Plus, if they went through the gauntlet of planning a wedding, legal or not, they should be able to use the terminology!
