Widow or not?

My partner of 22 yrs passed July 23.

We were never married 

For the purpose of finding support am I considered a widow or not?

If you're talking about legal matters, it probably depends on what state you live in. But for a grief support group, and for processing the loss you're experiencing, yes, I believe you are a widow.
