Tomorrow is my 4-year-anniversary with my Partner. Most people say that they've had ups and downs with their loved one, but I'd have to say we probably take the cake. We have yelled. We have cried. We have had astounding triumphs and glorious moments. My partner showed me exactly how love isn't like the movies, but it's better. Love is like the fit of a comfortable glove.
The average marriage these days lasts between 3-5 years. We're smack dab in the middle of that, but we're not married. I'd like to marry this man. I'd love to enjoy all of the benefits that go along with the stresses of long-term relationships. I'd like to know that when I am sick and dying in a hospital my partner won't be forced into a nursing home and made to watch our lives be auctioned off by the powers that be.
This is not a diatribe on gay marriage. It isn't. It's just interesting, isn't it?
Happy Anniversary Beloved.
Love and Lyte,
