Trudy - if we are addressing contemporary gay couples most people I know use "partners" until or if they marry. Then gay men refer to each other as husbands and lesbian couples refer to each other as wife. I am part of the community and live in Oklahoma and that is what I see here. Several of my favorite authors are lesbian (not why I read them - had no clue when purchased) and if married they refer to their "wife" on their blogs or about the author info on Amazon. 

If you are sticking to your old software you will probably have to just enter notes on the relationship. I use Legacy and know some great uncles were gay but as far as I know they were never in long term relationships - a different era.
