So just a curiousity question..more and more people i know that are dating constantly call each other husband and wife, when they are not.  My bf and I have been together for 2 years, live together and I'm pregnant with his first child however he is not my husband! not yet anyway lol I guess it's mostly on FB I see this.  My cousins bf just said something this morning on FB about his "wife", and they are in no way married.  They aren't the only ones I've noticed doing this sooo is this the new normal thing or do I just know some weird people?? lol

It annoys me to no end... but it has become more and more the norm for boy friends and girl friends to call each other husband or wife.

Unless its common law, its annoying. Ultimately I don't care as it's not causing any harm.

It doesn't bother me at all. In fact, I'm going to start calling my husband my life partner just to screw with people.

Yeah, it's annoying (and confusing). It doesn't affect me personally, but it's annoying nonetheless.

I'm married now, but wouldn't call him my husband before that. It was matter of principle, put a ring on it and make it legit! Otherwise, you're my boyfriend. Don't have a problem with other people doing it, but my personal preference.

Unless you are in a serious committed relationship.. Its annoying. Especially young couples who break up every week..

When we had our first, she was a surprise.

We decided to stick it out and be a family. We did get married when she was 1, but until then he always referred to me as wife.

At the time we were 25 and 31. We'd look like idiots if we referred to eachother as baby mama and baby daddy lol. Girlfriend/ boyfriend sounds juvenile and fiance *I* just hate.

It is what it is, and married sounds more serious if you're already a family. As for kids saying husband/ wife I guess that is annoying.

Jmo!
