    They both identify as male, so they are both the husband. What outdated concepts are you going by that say there can be only one? My marriage has two wives and two husbands.

    I've known my fair share of gay married couples. To date none of them have introduced their other half as anything other than the typical title based on their gender. Male=husband, Female=wife.

    And that makes you an expert on SSM ?
    Introduction;
    This is My Life Partner; ( name here) very few adopt HS terms of husband & wife...
    The outdated stereotype of a homosexual marriage, a butch man and a fem man reffering to each other as husband & wife...

    No, it does not.

    I never claimed that I was an expert on SSM, I never said that it was what all SSM couples do. I simply stated a fact about my personal experiences with the SSM couples that I know and how they introduce themselves.

    If I used my experiences as a basis for a broader statement, then I would have been in the wrong. But if I had done that then my statement would have been akin to "Every SSM couple I've known has done this therefore all SSM couples do that."

    Which is not what I said. What I actually said was...

    Bit of a difference.

    Well I find that odd since I've not seen that. My friends have introduced themselves as "Hi, I'm [male name] and this is my husband [male name2]" and "Hi, I'm [female name] and this is my wife [female name2]"

    Perhaps it's a difference in locality? I sent my one friend a message over Facebook and asked about "Life Partner". His response is that he and his husband have had enough of having to call each other life partners and rejoiced when SSM became legal in all 50 states and could acknowledge each other as a true married couple.

    Again this is not a broad statement...just the opinions and beliefs of two people that I know.

    He likes talking about it he just talks negatively about it so he can talk about it without admitting he likes talking about it.

    What so confusing? Everything I've laid out is simple enough.

    Looks like double-speak to me! Anyway forget it - I think we've run out of mileage on this one now?

    You seem to have this way with vague statements, that don't convey any real message at all. But if you want to drop it that's on you.

    It was your 'My marriage has two wives and two husbands' that short-circuited my brain.

    You think Polygamy is modern? :laughing:

    It is, at least, just as "outdated" as monogamy, so calling the latter "outdated" makes no sense whatsoever.

    Polygamy is no more or less modern than monogamy. The outdated concept is not monogamy itself, but that monogamy is the only one possible. Or in the case of monogamy that only one wife and one husband is possible. The outdated concept is that you can't have two of either in the same marriage.
