no…. not wife.
I never describe myself as such…nor identify as such…nor does my partner Jane ever describe me as such.
(though we could use fiance i guess if we felt so inclined)
but interesting its been used repeatedly over the last few days.
How can we as a society handle something as complex as gender identity with all its subtleties when we still assume that a woman who lives with someone, loves and supports them MUST be a wife.
