Miss Sharon has questions.
When did the term 'single' become attached to people who are not in a relationship and the term 'married' attached to those who are?
Let me help you out, Darlin'. Unless and until you actually get married you, my dear, are single.
You can call him hubby all you want to and refer to his family as in-laws but unless and until you actually get married, you are single with a boyfriend who has family members.
Stop rushing everything.
Just because you are playing married (living together) does NOT make you married. You're just single and shacking up.
He hasn't given you his last name and in many cases that is a tremendous blessing. Celebrate that,Girl. Run while you can.
Stop using the fake titles.
Earn it if you're going to use it.
I can call myself a doctor but until I do the work and earn my diploma, I am NOT be a doctor.
Stop faking it.
Do the real relationship work. All you are doing is playing house.
Having kids with him does not make you his wife or him your hubby. You may give him hubby benefits but he's not your husband.
Using the term prematurely is disrespectful to those who are actually married.
No wonder he is in no hurry to put 2 rings on it and send you down the aisle with his last name. You have given him the title and the benefits without him earning ANY of it.
Calling him your husband is like a participation trophy. <smh>
It's not cute.
