announcing. . .

The fully registered domestic partnership of the Fruitfemme y Scully!

It was so romantic. “Will you domestic partner registry me?” I asked her sweetly one day. And, yes, she said “yes.” A thousand times, yes.

At last the day has arrived. She opened up the webform. I listened to her click on the keyboard. Then finally we came to the button “submit.”

Submit? I frowned. That’s not what I’m signing up for!

“Submit the information.”

Oh—okay, then. Scully hit the submit button.

The emailed confirmation pronounced us registered with the city of Lawrence.

I feel more respectable than ever.

Not a bad way to celebrate the lamas/harvest festival, eh?

I love Lawrence!

Happy Lamas!

This is what you get for sharing...
Scully-"I can't believe the city made us pay $75 to do a domestic registry that seem so unfair."
Dumb person- "Well you know a marriage license is $75 so that price seems fair."

What do you say?

To goldfish--Thanks! The city nicely timed the opening of the registry with your latest posts on relationships. :)

To Scully--You reply, oh, really? Does it come with all the same tax breaks, insurance benefits and public recognition of a marriage license?
