Do you or your husband have an accent?

I'm from upstate NY and I have an accent and my SO rags on me for it.. I was wondering if anyone else has this situation where their SO is from somewhere else and thinks you talk with an accent.

Oh and for those of you who don't know, I don't talk like Fran Drescher the Nanny, my accent is more like Sarah Palin's.

  • I don't notice either of us having an accent anymore. The years we spent in Cali rid us of our southern accent for the most part. We are in North Dakota now and have avoid the accent they have here. It is not easy since their accents are very strong.

  • I am Southern and do not have an accent.. until I have a few bourbons..

    I talked myself out of an accent so to speak.. and traveling extensively can help you rid an accent..

    My EX had a South African accent.. drove me nuts..

    Now I have a nice Ohio boy.. who says Pop instead of Soda! too cute..:)

  • Nope, we are both west coasters by birth so we dont really have accents.

    Others might think we do but its not something we hear much about.

  • Hubby is from Cali, I'm from Georgia. There are certain things that I say that really is Southern sounding and he makes sure to point those out. But, I just remind him of when he had surgery and was waking up from the anesthesia that he suddenly developed an extremely strong one out of nowhere! It was absolutely hilarious!!!! But, other than those few things, we pretty much sound the same
