It's not inaccurate to say she's misunderstanding my situation, in that she believes my situation is "married = primary" and never bothered to consider alternatives. She seems to be one of those people with a very negative attitude towards marriage in general, sees it as nothing but a financial contract. She almost comes across like "not being married" makes her "above all that."
I don't need labels to define me. They're sticky and I hate the glue they leave behind.
