The Same, Only Different
I see some people have mentioned that they get asked when they will start having children, which is a tactless question to begin with. When you're married to a same-sex partner, you get the question even more, I think. I have no problem telling people that we don't want children. I used to explain why, but then I realized I did this to make the questioners feel more comfortable. Now I just stare at them. I don't care how long the silence lasts. Let them dig themselves out of their own hole. The hardest part is keeping a "poker face" while I maintain eye contact. I really just want to burst out laughing sometimes.
