Facebook Adds Domestic Partnership and Civil Union Relationship Status

Facebook Adds Civil Unions and Domestic Partnerships — What's Your FB Status?

Updating the Facebook relationship status just got a lot less complicated for couples in a domestic partnership or civil union. The site has added two new categories — "in a civil union" and "in a domestic partnership" — which are being rolled out so far in the US, Canada, France, the UK, and Australia. Now there are a total 11 ways to describe your love life on Facebook, including the previous options of single, in a relationship, married, engaged, it's complicated, in an open relationship, widowed, separated, and divorced. So I want to know, what do you currently flaunt on your profile?

I'm "in a relationship" which has not really been a big deal since i've been with my boyfriend for coming up on four years. But one of my friends who is opposed to marriage but in a long term relationship just made use of the "domestic partnership" option!

I don't put my relationship status on Facebook either. I share some things on FB, but for the most part, I've learned to keep my personal life private.

I don't have anything as a status, it's blank. People make too big a deal of it. You get a bunch of annoying, inquisitive comments when it changes.

I'm married, and it says so on my profile. We have an open relationship, but I choose to only tell that to certain people.
