That’s exactly it – the definitions surrounding relationship status in general feel outdated, and young people finally feel empowered to do something totally bespoke, neither married nor unmarried, a wildcard other option. "We’ve always been on the same page about being marriage and child-free... We’re just happy together and want to spend life as a couple, but the only difference now is I have a ring. I feel bad talking down marriage, 'cause lots of my friends and family are married or engaged! I sometimes feel the pressure of society follows us from birth 'til death and I try my best to avoid all that. Like we are told we have to do a bunch of things: school, college, job, pension, marriage, kids, buy a house, retire. And if you don’t do this list then you’re not complete. I like to make my own rules as I go along – we’re both extremely happy in our relationship and that’s all that matters to me," Kathi explains.
