Word of the Gay: "Life Partners"

"Life Partners" are people who have committed to one another in a relationship that is usually romantic but can also signify a close friendship.

Nice term, but I'm still in search of a more 'stronger' term with regard to the strength and impact that heterosexuals have when they're in committed relationships and monogamous marriages. No one seems to take them for a joke when they say things like "he's my husband or she's my wife". Others around them simply know that it's for real and mostly for a lifetime. With homosexuals, heteros tend not to take us and our long-term relationships seriously, which is one reason why we can't seem to get same-sex marriages passed as a human right in America.

Yes, Ray that is true but also not that even though heteros wouldn't seem to take a gay marriage seriously I think some of the heteros don't take their own marriage seriously you hear all the time people getting divorced after 1 year of marriage or 2 years of marriage sometimes even after a few months of marriage.
