  • did he do it on purpose as to be directly mean? or was it actually an accident? like if they were together for 12 yrs. or something it just may have been a slip?

  • I let mine call me anything he wants as long as he is in bed with me. It was probably a subconscious thing. No dog house. It cheats you out of sex! Next time he does it, call him by some other man's name. That should cure it!

  • Keep him in the DOG HOUSE, for a VERY LONG time. At least until you find out if he/they have been F#%king or not (having an affair)

  • Are the names similiar? The girl my husband dated for several years before me was named Delaine, my name is DeeLyn so you can imagine how many times he got that confused. Ya gotta give the guy a break now and then.

  • Heck I'm all the time calling someone the wrong name... doesn't mean I'm sleeping with them or even want to (most of the time it's my female friends). I've called my husband my boss's name, I've even went to hang up the phone with telemarketer and said "ok, bye, I love you". Sometimes the mind just isnt' working with the mouth.
    I'd sure be upset, no doubt about it, but if you don't think he's got nothing going on or wants anything going on with the ex, then don't get too worked up about it.

  • If I was in the dog house everytime I called my husband or kids the wrong name I would never be anywhere else. Cut the guy a break. It's Christmas, it wasn't malicious. Let it go.
