AP memo: Marriage license not enough proof of a same-sex marriage

by Jeremy Hooper

Thankfully I've written a book and a boatload of commentary pieces in which I refer to my legally-wed spouse as my husband. I say "thankfully" because according to a new Associated Press memo, the AP is only going to list my actual husband as my husband, actually, if there is some sort of documented proof that I use the term to describe him:

AP Restricts Use of 'Husband' and 'Wife' to Married Hetero Couples [Towle]

Should you not have your own writing platform, remember to add a line to your will. Something like, "I leave the house to my daughter, my artwork to gallery-owning cousin Jodee, and my permission to be referenced as a legal spouse to the Associated Press."
