Transcript What do you call the person who takes care of you when you are sick, the person with whom you plan your vacations, and consult when picking out a kitten to take home? What do you call the woman you eat your meals with, share household chores with, watch tv with, and love? The relationship resembles marriage, but there is no husband or wife, and neither wants the ritualization implied by spouse. They are lovers, but more; roommates, but more; life companions, but that's so bulky, and who feels comfortable saying "Til death do us part" anyway. Most of the time I just call that woman in my life by her name when talking with others, and "Hey, Cutie" when I am with her. But in some situations you want to communicate the relationship between you, and I haven't yet thought of an existing word that does that to my satisfaction. So I made one up. I propose "sharee" as an appropriate term to help fill the gap in our language when describing relationships. It is derived from the verb share because that word seemed to encompass everything I would like to say about my relationship: we share our lives with each other. Your comments about the word "sharee" or the phenomenon of couplism would be welcomed, as well as any favorite words you would like to propose. Ellen 12G0 wala welcome to lesbian LTD
