1. Eric is white
(The nature of the psyche of this country/society: the interracial factor would sort of makes us 'other' even if we were traditionally married)
2. Eric has schizophrenia
(Makes for interesting times and relating)
3. We are not physical yet live in close quarters
(Some don't understand how this works. I don't always, either)
4. Not married, yet reliant on each other as family for company, support, etc.
(Still working on having a paper trail about this to protect us both. Going to evil Microsoft's website has been helpful in getting templates for will, living will, power of attorney, etc -- just in case)
That's all I got, I guess.
