[de facto] when is it ever genuine

If a man beats his de facto to death, surely that wouldn't count as a genuine killing?

I've been in de facto marriages and in the other sort too and I can't quite see the point of de facto these days, especially as there is still a property settlement and lots of other goodies, should the two part.

In these days when same sex couples can have ersatz marriages and even children [in a manner of speaking] plus certain other difficulties, then one pauses to think. Maybe it's better to be asexual, like me.

More widely in society, for example when there are female clergy and they no longer do the services in Latin, perhaps the genuine article should be subsidized now.

William Gruff considers we should get real in other ways too. I like Welshcakes' method of getting real too.

I'm heading down the road for a genuine coffee at an ersatz caffe after that diatribe.

Yep. If they had asked Mr. Jams O'Donnell Esq., they had known that the correct term is not-wife. De facto. :)

you mean you have to have some sort of license (double-o perhaps) to have a genuine killing? Just turning someone from alive to dead isn't good enough?

Very laddish here, I see. Asexual, are you, James? !!

In light of quite a few of the previous blog posts I did wonder about that comment myself Welshcakes ;-)

The need to reassure, I think.
