I honestly don't give a flip what you think about my relationship. The opinion of others has no effect on my life, or my relationship. I am interested in having all of the same legal protections Married couples have. I am interested in not being denied access to my fiancee when she is in the hospital. I am interested in not having to pay estate taxes on our home if something happens to my fiancee, just like current spouses don't have to. I am interested in having our children be legally both of ours. you know those little day to day things that married couples don't have to deal with.
