The Best Parts Of Being A Femme Couple

Being a femme couple is simply two feminine women who share a romantic relationship – and luckily, I am one of those women. Let me tell you, being a femme couple definitely has its advantages when it comes to sharing clothes, make-up and all that girlie stuff. However, on the other hand, we have to endure society’s initial shock and disbelief that two feminine blondes are not sisters, friends or even distant cousins, but that we are in fact wife and wife. Even though legally we are recognized as civil partners, we still refer to each other as “wife.”

We are very lucky that we are the same size for clothes, because we get double the wardrobe. We also share our make-up, perfume, jewellery, toiletries and the list goes on. It is a great plus because everything girlie you once had before turns into double. However, when it comes to bras and shoes, we have to stick to our own as unfortunately I am not a DD-cup like my wife. I love the fact that we always unintentionally match our outfits as well. For instance, if we see the other is wearing leggings and leopard print, you better believe the other will have a similar ensemble on. We really do not aim to match: I think it is our subconscious wanting to be similar and not clash. Shopping together is also a perk since we often go in the same changing room – which is similar to shopping with your best friend but different because we get to sneakily share kisses.

Another plus of being a femme couple is that our house is the prettiest home you could imagine. It’s clear from walking in that no man could possibly live there. We love pink, hearts and flowers, and those small touches that really represent us as a femme couple. We also have photos of us together throughout the house. My wife and I love nothing better than to snuggle up in bed and watch our favourite TV shows, as well as getting dressed up and going out for a meal and for a few cocktails. In our relationship, there are no “guys” and “girls” nights out, and we don’t have to pay for the sports channel.

My wife and I can truly relate to each other in terms of having an understanding of how the other may feel in certain situations. For example, how badly our feet are hurting after a night of wearing heels or how awful period pains are. Our bond is an unbreakable and very special one. We are emotionally connected to the point where we finish each other’s sentences, empathize greatly during that time of the month, as well as try to not kill each other when PMS strikes.
