A dinotopian word for marriage or close friendship. Literally means breathing together.
Those who wish to establish cumspiritik must undergo extensive examination before they can be entered into the official record. While there is no official requirement, there are no recorded intraspecies same-sex couples granted cumspiritik status.
Benefits of cumspiritik include the right to raise children/hatchlings, undisputed transfer of property, funeral and bereavement leave, the right to make medical decisions, and of course the sociocultural benefits.
It is possible to dissolve cumspiritik, but the proceedings are lengthy.
