1. I am a feminist
    Which I am. However, in this instance I am using it as a euphemism for commitment issues. More detail in a future list.
  2. I'm scared
    What if the thought of being tied down makes me run?
  3. It is my rebellion.
    I seriously never rebelled. Apparently I'm a late bloomer.
  4. I don't believe we're living in sin.
    I do believe that living with someone out of love is worse than living without a government document.
  5. I will not modify my life to make others more comfortable with my relationship
    No, we don't have the same last name. Yes our child's name is hyphenated. Deal with it.
  6. We are more in sync and commuted than a lot of couples I know.
    And I know some pretty amazing couples.
