How to spill the secret marriage beans

DEAR MISS MANNERS: My longtime boyfriend (we started dating in high school) and I bought a house together in 2009, and soon after decided to become legally married, mostly for financial reasons. He had a well-paying job and I had just started grad school. I assumed we’d have a wedding within the year, and decided not to let anyone know we were legally married.
