    Perhaps illegal spouse is what gay people should have been calling their spouses back in the dark days before the Obgerfell decision from the supreme court.

    Well, in my Dad's day, he and his husband would have each been fired from their jobs for being homosexual, so they didn't even have the luxury of using a label. Fun times...

    Bae, that’s really awful. There’s always a group to discriminate against unfortunately.

    In my circle, it wasn't the gay people calling their spouses illegal, it was others outside the relationship that had their own issues with such relationships.

    @bae,

    The acronym for Before Anyone Else... "BAE", comes in handy when addressing the person. For example: "Stay safe. I love you, bae."

    When referring to the person, it makes sense to use whatever term people will understand.
    my partner,
    my main squeeze,
    ma cher amio (Cajun)
    Nee-Chee-Moos (Plains Cree)
    etc.

    "Woke" and "un-Woke" seem to be the new terms of the month/day...where did they originate, I wonder?

    Have we put "At the end of the day" to bed yet?? Whenever I hear it on media I tend to say "You're another day older"...

    As to what to call an unwed soul-mate, I kind of like Love-Bunny. Let's be woke and original.

    Sorry, kids, being frisky and silly tonight. Had first trip to the gym in over 14 months this afternoon and my endorphins have come out to play it seems...
    peaceful, easy feeling

    That is a good question about woke/unwoke. It seems odd to me that "sleepy' joe Biden is the leader of the woke party, and the dude that only sleeps a couple hours a night (although who knows, maybe he sleeps more now that he can't spend his nights watching tv and rage tweeting) is the leader of the unwoke party.
