    Technically I'm not - we've got a deal that we'll do the deed when I'm earning £28k and can afford to have a really big party without relying on either of our parents to fund it.

    But 6 yrs together (including 4 yrs living together and 2 yrs of owning a house together) makes it feel daft to call him my boyfriend (smacks of snogs behing the bike sheds to me).

    You could say 'partner', that sounds more formal.

    I hope you earn 28K before you get in your 50s

    I don't like partner - sounds a bit too formal/business like (plus there are a few people who assume a partner will be the same sex as you...I've dealt with that mistake before) hubby seems to fit best (although I occassionally use "other half")

    And as of December I'm £4 of the £20k mark with another promotion looking likely so hopefully we can party soonish...although the big party plan might all get turned on its head and we'll just elope to alton towers

    well, as long as youre aware that you and your partner have no legal attachments as it is. he could leave/die tomorrow and you might be up a creek. :eek:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

    Well my new year was very unexciting - me and 3 friends went to some house party at a school friend of ours (he's had about 4 parties before and they were all a good <drunk> laugh), but we got there at 10, and left 20 minutes later it was that bad! We were the only ones there from our school (which he knew we would be but neglected to tell us before we got there) and everyone else was from his village and they were all younger than us - so we decided we had to go!!! We told our friend we were going to go and find somewhere to buy some alcohol and didn't come back! He phoned about an hour later to find out where we were so we told him that we were lost and could see trees!!! Oh well ended up as the four of us at my friend Lu's house singing along to Sky One Kareoke!!! What fun....

    We've got a joint bank account and a joint mortgage, and we're both listed as "opted next of kin" thingies (can't remember the legal term) at work. But as it is he can't get life insurance anyway so even if we were married and he died I'd be up a creek :shrug: (and even if roles were reversed, as his main carer if I died even though the house would be safe he'd probably have to sell up and move back in with his parents).
    And I'm confident that we're good enough friends (even when we've argued) to deal with any kind of breakup sensibly.
