Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have the best weekend. I’m off to go to work and allotting myself a full hour instead of the usual fifteen minutes since I work downtown and the POTUS is in town for SXSW! Hope you enjoy this week’s links that made me feel feelings.
For many women, friends are our primary partners through life; they are the ones who move us into new homes, out of bad relationships, through births and illnesses. Even for women who do marry, this is true at the beginning of our adult lives, and at the end â€” after divorce or the death of a spouse.
There arenâ€™t any ceremonies to make this official. There arenâ€™t weddings; there arenâ€™t health benefits or domestic partnerships or familial recognition. There has not yet been any satisfying way to recognize the role that we play for one another. But, as so many millions of us stay unmarried for more years, maybe there should be.
