I don't care what others do, but personally get annoyed when my mum calls my SO my hubby, or I his wife. To me that's special, and he can claim that the day we say I do.

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.

Why do you care, if other people care?

The commitment to marriage "isn't that serious?" The commitment to being a parent "isn't that serious?"

That mentality is disgusting.

Quoting LucyMom08:

It's really not that serious...

Just because some of us haven't gone the the courthouse/church/wherever & gotten that piece of paper does not mean we do not take our relationships seriously. Df & I have been together for 10 years. If that's not serious, I don't know what is.

You can't just go changing the meaning of things all willy nilly. Otherwise, it looses the true meaning. Husband and wife defines people who are MARRIED. You can't just go change the meaning of it to suit yourself.

 From now on I'm going to refer to myself & expect everyone else to refer to me as "Dr. [insert my last name]"  Just because someone else decided to put in time & effort for a piece of paper doesn't mean I should have the same respect & privledges without taking the steps to get it, right?  I can just pretend I did what they did & have the same distinction.  Who cares, right?  Just paper!
