Right. Like in another thread I mentioned that some people would rather not use primary/secondary as phrases but still acknowedge that one partner is a "domestic" partner (or legal spouse, if the case). It just works out that way easier for day-to-day living purposes.
Or, even in the case of someone who's still technically single (ie, lives alone), I personally still have one that I see the most. Not because I like or love him more than any other partner, it's just that it worked out that we can see each other more regularly than the others.
