I don't believe that "partner" is the preferred nomenclature for a heterosexual coupling.
I have a few friends who ended up using that. It sometimes comes into play for people who are less interested in marriage (children of really bad divorces, most often), but in long-term enough relationships that they do most of the married things. 

Of course, the majority of people I know who used that eventually just decided to get married.

So our younger son, loves baseball, but his favorite thing is dance. And there's a kid on the bus that bullies him about it. This kid's dad isn't charge of the football program, unfortunately he married a cheerleader, and this kid got all of his mom's genes.  He is a second grader, who is shorter than our kindergartner, but our kindergartner is intimidated by the two year age gap.  Our older son, who is also in second grade, is arguably the most athletic kid in that grade. He plays travel baseball, and the other kid did not make the team. But for in-house they play each other. There was another bullying incident today, but our older son plays him this week in in-house. I told him to go in spikes high.  They are rubber, they aren't going to hurt anyone. I just want him to send a message. My wife found out and is now pissed off. I do not think I am out of line here. Thoughts?
Hmmmm. This feels like a place where tacit support and clandestine planning seems right. However, telling one's kid to ... I guess try to "hurt" another kid, that leaves me somewhat queasy. 

I don't know that you're out of line, but anyone giving you hell for it is not likely out of line either, if that makes any sense. (Like if your kid was being a jerk, and you found out that the other kids dad put the kid's brother up to kicking him, you'd probably not be super enthused with that dad)

Agreed.  Let the players settle it

I don't love it either.  And if he was bullying our son who is actually his age, I'd say to just beat him on the field.  But he's an 8 year old bullying our 5 year old.  Our 8 year old has proven everything legitimately, and the 5 year old days the bullying only happens on days our 8 year old has orthodontist appointments and can't stand up for him.  So I kind of feel like if this kid takes a rubber clear to the shin, shit happens.  I'd prefer that to telling our 8 year old to actually physically defending his brother on the bus

I'm all for it, but your youngest is gonna have to stand up to the kid too at some point.

People use "I" instead of the term "one," because when a person uses "one," it's often confusing.  I, of course, knew who would be reading my posts and know how confused you can get from perfectly plain posts already.
.
Now you've leapt to trying to use homosexuality as an insult, and I'm sure you have your whole life.  Good for you. 
If I can go the rest of my life being the exact opposite of you, then I've have lived a good life.
Also, if one does the same, he or she would have lived a similarly good life.
Lol. You've had multiple posts removed for calling people gay.

Do these "friends" just so happen to also be from the "Bay Area"? :D

I rest my case.

No, there are in every state different levels of law breaking obviously.
Again, the Team Echo Chamber crew here totally whiffed on my post.
847 suggested people simply wear protection to avoid this whole issue.  Like a shrug and just, you know, don't dump your load in the chick.  As if that's any kind of realistic fix.
My post suggested we simply tell murderers to, you know, just not kill people.  Shrug and just tell them that, as if not killing people has never occurred to them.

It had nothing to do with different crimes having different severities.  FFS

Murder is treated differently in the legal system, it's not the same as having unprotected sex.

A few. Some from elsewhere.

Edit: Also worth noting, "Partner" has dipped in use in the gay community as well. They have the option of wife/husband nowadays.
