I really, really hate the term partner when referring to an intimate relationship. When I hear the term I actually cringe. Partner just brings to mind business partners, tennis partners and cowboys.

I watch a lot of BBC America and I hear the term frequently, usually when referring to a straight person’s other half. I see the British folk have picked up the term and ran with it. Whatever happened to terms like husband, wife, spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend?

I’m not saying you sound gay using the term it’s just that you have so many to choose from why use one that sounds stupid?
