Last year, my Love and I filled out the paperwork to be qualified as Domestic Partners at her work. We finalized our wills, sent in copies of our mortgage and deed, and jumped through numerous hoops to PROVE that we are indeed committed to each other financially.
Yesterday, it went through. I'm officially domestically partnered. And I have an insurance card with both of our names on it to prove it.
Not quite as good as getting married, but close.
