    If "married" we list spouse on application

    If not, we list "partner" on it. If needed, we go more into detail with a cover sheet. Haven't had any issues thus far.

    But I'm assuming every carrier may view things a little differently.

    Same as all marriages. If they have a marriage license, its spouse. If they don't, its a "friend".

    And in the Great State of Texas, just have them put it as spouse. Then the application can be their marriage license. ;)

    Domestic Partner - sometimes "Partner" can be construed as a business partner.

    Cover letters do wonders, as well!

    How do I know if my life insurance policy is gay or not? I keep it in a filing cabinet most of the time.

    This is by far the most idiotic and bigoted question I have heard in a long time.

    What does "has anyone done a gay life insurance policy" even mean?

    Same thing I would do with a straight couple that isn't married, congratulations, you're engaged.
