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!

Husband and wife are earned titles. It takes a lot more than a wedding or a certificate to be a husband or wife. Anyone can get married, it's take a lot to be married.

Yup anything thats traditional is coming to the point of disintegration. NOTHING IS VALUED ANYMORE. the cool thing now is open marriage and same sex marriage, and acting like your married when your not. It's very sad.

What this post illustrates is the disintegration of the institution of Marriage.  We may be beyond the point of trying to save and preserve it.  God help us.

Because some people do not believe in marriage and are content being common law but when they say bf or partner some idiots belittle their relationship and take them less seriously even if they have been together for twenty years.

because they don't want to admit living with someone which to some people makes them skank

I used to call my bf that but now it's just bf. He's under hubby on my phone. We are about to get engaged so he will be my fiance.

I don't think it is a big deal... I call him "boyfriend" ... but who cares... I know a lot of women that call theirs boyfriend as husband because they need or want to do it
