Do any straight people refer to their s.o. as their partner?

I've told this story before, but I once had a job interview with a gay man, and the interview was going swimmingly for a good half hour until I mentioned that I moved out here to San Francisco with my girlfriend and the interview came to a screeching halt.

From that point on I referred to my girlfriend as my partner in every interview I had.

I had an interview yesterday and I referred to her as my "then partner."

For all you partners out there...

Neil Patrick Harris has revealed that he can't wait to marry partner David Burtka as he wants to call him his "husband'.
The 'How I Met Your Mother' star has been engaged to the chef for over five years.
"I'm not the biggest fan of the word 'partner'. It either means that we run a business together or we're cowboys," Contactmusic quoted him as telling Out magazine.
 
"'Boyfriend' seems fleeting, like maybe we met two weeks ago. I've been saying 'better half' for as long as I've been able to. I think it's a little self-deprecating and clearly defines that we're in a relationship, but it would be nice to say 'my husband,'" he said.

I decided to dredge this thread up because it was so much fun being put in my place by Thatguy for picking on his friends Nicole and Joel. Plenty of other Hall of Fame material here too.

But anyway, this is probably an unpopular take, but the Golden Globes are the best awards show.

Why?

1. They honor both film and tv, all in one show.
2. They have no musical performances (which are usually bad at the Grammys and always bad at the Oscars.)
3. The dispense with boring awards like hair and makeup.
4. It's the only awards show with an open bar.
5. Poor Things beat Barbie for best musical/comedy.

I used to not like that they split the movie awards into musical/comedy and drama categories, but I don't mind it now.
They created an award for best standup special. Nice idea, but Ricky Gervais' special sucked and should not have won.
They created an award for most popular movie. How does anything other then the biggest box office movie win, so how is it any kind of surprise? Isn't the zilliondollars the movie made reqard enough?
Jo Koy sjould be selling tires over at Firestone, not hosting an awards show.

I canít believe anyone watches that abomination! Itís the most absolutely meaningless awards show ever.

Some people just like crapÖ.thatís the only thing I can conclude

Whatís next, the Peopleís Choice Awards?

I mean what is the point of winning an award nobody wants?

They created an award for the most popular movie so they didn't have to give it every single other award too. Its almost gonna be like if you have the biggest box office, that's what you get. The other more interesting movies can now win awards based on merit or whatever.
