"Inter-abled" relationships.....

Okay you guys, I keep seeing the term, "inter-abled" come up when I read about relationships or couple in our community. It seems to be a more commonly used term these days and before I make guessed or assumptions, I wanted to gather your opinions and education around this. 

If you are in a relationship:
 (Please help educate the community around you by copy and pasting these questions/ answers)

A) Does this apply to you?
B ) Would you refer to your relationship in these terms?
C) What makes a couple/ relationship inter-abled?
D) Why do you think it is important for others to acknowledge your relationship/ partnership this way?
E) Do your friends or family refer to you this way?

Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond to these questions. Together we will create awareness and education. 


Your WAGS of SCI
