When someone says "he is just your boyfriend, it's not like you are married". Wtf does that even mean? We have been together 6 and a half years. Just because we are not married DOES NOT make our relationship not real or any less than yours because your married and we aren't. Shit pisses me off. Ok, rant over.

lol Agreed. If you don't mind my asking, is there a reason you aren't married?

SO & I have been together 6 years too. I refer to him as my significant other because he ISNT my husband yet, and boyfriend just doesn't do it justice. lol

I hate that too. I also hate ” he's not your kids real dad” like he isn't the one raising them, like it wouldn't hurt them just as much to lose him.

Legally, your relationship is meaningless.

I should add though, that I don't care.  I don't see the point in marrying unless there's some legal benefit to be gained.

Lol I know. My SO's sister says stuff like this ALL THE TIME. I just shrug it off since she is the one living here with us because her husband up and left her and move 2 states away. before that he was in prison for 2 years. they have literally spent no more than a total of 6 months together, and not even consecutively. Yet her relationship is somehow more "meaningful" than mine.

Lmao!

I use SO as well.  We have been together 11 yrs coming this summer.  I use "my guy" as well since he is no where near a boy's age (haha).

We have lived together since 4 months after meeting so it's not like this isn't a real relationship. There is really no one reason. We do believe in marriage. I guess we have had a rocky road this past year and a half or so but we have survived it and whn we feel it's right, we will be married:)

SO always jokes that in the future he'll be like "This is my life partner of 20 years.." haha We will eventually get married. I want to finish school (college) first tho, and I'm just getting started, so we still have a couple years.

 It doesn't matter what others say...just how you view the relationship.

i hear that. Me and my husband have been together nearly 11 yrs and married for 6. And we lived with each other for 3 yrs before we got married. Marrage doesnt change anything. Its a peice of paper. I think if your already living with each other and you know your gonna be with each other then its the same. If you werent living together than thats a totally different story

There are a few stores around here that call him Mr "my last name"  ROFL  We are in a more steady relationship than some married couples we know.   

Congrats on finishing college !!.
