My partner and I are planning to have a "wedding". We were both married before, he has a 9 year old daughter, I have no children and do not want to have any.I would like to do a big blowout to celebrate "us" and "our undying love and commitment" but we are both not into the idea of marriage. I know this may sound strange.
I would like to get some feedback..... we filed for domestic partnership in August, and he bought me an engagement ring and wedding band in November. We are calling it a marriage already even though we are not legally married. He refers to me as his wife, and I refer to him as my husband. The domestic partnership does give us a lot of rights without having to answer to the church or the state.
Is it ok to throw a wedding even though it would not be a legally binding marriage? I want to do the white (well, ivory LOL) gown and the flowers and everything. I have no experience or knowledge of what the etiquette is on this.
