Because some of us take the meanings of those things seriously. The commitment behind each of those things is relavant & using them inappropriately is a slap in the face to those who take them seriously.

I don't care. I am getting married in one month. Maybe I just have more important things in life to care about and give attention to and some others don't.

I personally don't care much.

I CAN see legal applications and sitations where it would matter, though.  Such as insurance, end of life decisions, taxes, etc.

The psychological answer... it is natural for us to label and categorize pretty much all things. It is how our minds organize and make sense of all the information thrown at it. It isn't a bad thing. It's a normal comprehension mechanism. Chill

 People will have little pet peeves about every and anything, always. Its just human nature to have an opinion. And just because people express them on here, doesnt mean they are bitches IRL..

Same here...what strangers call someone they are in a relationship with doesn't bother me at all...

Quoting frankiesma530:

 I was wondering the same.  I don't care what someone wants to call their SO.  That's their choice.

The title of husband and wife comes with a ceremony, its been that way for centuries. It just is.

For me I find it irritating because it makes me think they got married and I was not aware. I have had cousins do this. Very confusing!
