What I Don't Know

is how my partner and I got where we are. We never signed anything. Never wrote out the parts each of us play. Never even thought about how we just one day found ourselves introducing ourselves as partners. I do know I purposely choose that term when I want to refer to her. I want to avoid the predjudice implied in calling her "my wife" and I know that I feel that being rigorous in this regard is a part of the equation. We share everything even when we don't. And we don't agree at first about many things. But somehow we have learned that in the end we will be together and that's why our partnership works.
