    you know, "partner" was originally what gay people called their significant other. Why did hetro's get confused and replace girlfriend or wife with this gay term?

    Everything is so black and white with you. You need to go and get a massage with a happy ending or something...

    Originally partner was a term to describe anyone in a partnership, some people don't bother about segregative sexual terminology. She's more than a girlfriend and we're not married, so it's an appropriate term.
