There is absolutely nothing wrong with using those sorts of terms at all. In a polyamorous relationship in which the people involved don't believe in privileging relationships, there is nothing wrong with using those terms providing they refer to levels of practical entanglement rather than how much you love/respect/cater for each person.

I really wouldn't pay too much attention about this subject to someone who was coerced into believing it's okay for his live in partner of nine years to basically say that he is her friend with benefits.

I think what the OP meant in this thread is that she wanted to be the person he starts to plan a future with (house, kids, other joint stuff) and he doesn't think they are compatible for that sort of thing.
