An adoptionship? What is this you speak of Human, you may ask. Let me explain ( I feel this phrase is going to stick). Some people feel entitled in relationships to the point of acting like they have no families or friends. A boyfriend/girlfriend isn’t a meal ticket. Fair?
An adoptionship is a malicious process whereby someone’s child assumes the parenting of another grown human , usually a girlfriend (if it’s a boyfriend that’s a tender) , from that person’s biological or legal parent or parents without knowing.

How to Evaluate this
You only give
Like how we treat parents, you only get gifts on valentine’s and your birthday. If you get a gift outside those days, you’ll feel slight disorientation and a high level of insecurity.
You play the wrong roles
Be sweet, be romantic and be supportive, just don’t be stupid. If you can’t tell your friends and family about the things you do for them, chances are you’re doing it wrong. Rent, their family medical expenses, groceries that your mother has never tasted, a house your father doesn’t have. If you’re playing those, adoptionship. Makes sense?
You disagree with what I just said
I said it. Jokes aside. A relationship should be a partnership not a sponsorship deal which is mostly transactional. I know if you love someone you’ll do anything for them .. ( ANYTHING?! Come on, you’re better than that. You’re not the only person they have. Play your own role. Wait for marriage if slavery is what you seek.)
