Who hates to use SO?

I have been with my boyfriend for 16 years, I have no intentions on getting married anytime soon. I hate to use SO, IDK why, but to me he is more than that to me.

  • LTLI is what a friend of mine uses: Long Term Live In. Make up your own if you don't like what the norm term is.

  • You don't have to say SO. You can just call him your bf or even your husband. It doesn't really matter.

  • honestly... I dont understand not just getting married... never will.


    But if you dont like SO, then how about LP, life partner.  Although it is used alot in the gay community because they are not permitted to get married (another thing I will never understand) so as long as you dont mind explaining you are straight you could use that.


    It does have a more loving connotation than SO.


    If you say bf... I think it gives the feeling of a temporary situation.  bf is usually on the road to df which leads to dh.

  • I think if I were in your shoes I'd probably just start calling him my husband. Technically you have a common law marriage :)
