Why do you call him your husband if he isn't your husband?

Posted by   + Show Post
I've seen this often on here and was just wondering why women do that. Discuss!

I don't get this either. I have been with my SO for almost 5 years and don't call him that, I won'tget until we get married, if we do.

I have a friend who has been with her boyfriend just about a year now, I think and she changed her last name to his on Facebook. She's always talking about how he gave her his last name, etc etc.. Ummm no, he didn't.

Because we have been together 4 years, having a child together, been through more than most married couples and we do not have the means for the type of wedding we want..

Df is df & will be til we get married. Now if someone refers to him as my hubby, I don't correct them.

Exactly and they use the line I don't need a piece of paper to show our love, blah blah blah same ol crap. But we know damn well it crosses her mind a lot, why won't he marry me? Waaahhh

Quoting MrsMetalMama:

Cause they want him to be but he probably doesn't want to be her husband. some chicks are crazy like that.

Do you feel uncomfortable calling him your boyfriend?

Quoting Anonymous:

Because we've been together so long, he obviously isn't going anywhere- and I don't need a piece of paper to say so.

He's my fiance, I have a ring & we finally set a date, we were engaged 2 years without a date set.
But in RL I usually call him my bf. Here I write DF cause I associate BF with birth father.
