I used to be against labels of all kinds. Then I realized, it's not my place to tell other people what labels they may or may not use for their own lives. What I don't like is when other people impose labels on me and ignore my desire not to have that done.
The old cliche holds: actions speak louder than words. My husband is my husband, but that doesn't mean I treat him like my possession. Conversely, referring to him as "The man I married" doesn't actually preclude me treating him like a possession.
