Short Takes for Saturday, February 17, 2018

February 17 2018 - 1:00am

NOW we have agreed to support same-sex marriages, those of us outside the inner circle need some advice on how to go about it. Seriously. How, for instance, do we address their mail?  How do they like to be introduced to newcomers? Two surnames? He referring to his partner as his husband does not help, nor she referring to her partner as her wife. The computations are mind-boggling and confusing. It's a brave new world we live in now, and ‘meet the missus’ doesn't hack it any more. We need help here.
