You have to prove your legitimacy

Sometimes people will talk to me as if my partner won’t be my life partner—as if he’s just one boyfriend in a string of many and we are just trying things out. I think the term “boyfriend” makes them think this is fleeting. I have to try not to get annoyed with them, since I know “husband” sounds more permanent but, to be clear, we do plan on spending our lives together.
