TZ: Oh c’mon, relationships are so twentieth century! There’s the economic reason: If I don’t have a partner to take care of me in rough times, I might not get through. you’ve got this insurance policy of a loving partner who will take care of you. But economics and getting by day-to-day are the main reason to label yourself based on the relationship you are in.
