Using the term husband
Post reply image
on Apr 11, 2013 (Read 1274 times | Comments: 9)
I have been married for 3 year this March 2013. I was with my husband for 15 year before we got married... I was content in not being married and never made it an issue. On the other hand he wanted and always spoke about being and getting married... So we finally did it. I find it really difficult in using the word husband. I am I wrong or is this normal?

My step mother-in-law is very independent from her "husband." They dated for quite a few years before they ever married. She kept her last name and proudly posts a giant "H" with his "W" all around their house. You shouldn't judge yourself on this matter at all. Do what feels right for you. As long as you are happy, that's all that matters. "Husband" is only a word. Go by your heart.

I've been with my husband for 8 years, and I still feel weird saying the word "husband". Sometimes he'll give me the stink eye when I slip "boyfriend" or "partner" into a conversation with other people, but it's just a habit. It's not like I love him any less, it's just... I don't know. I never saw myself getting married, so it still feels odd saying it.

I think it is normal for you to feel a lilttle un comfortable to use the Big word Husband right now, but sooner or later you'll start to notice it doesnt bother you anymore and you feel proud to say that's my husband.

My husband and I will sometimes make the word into more of a pet name like hubby or wifey and that feels very natural to us. Now what we never really use are the Mr and Mrs terms. I too have been married 3 years and being called Mrs. Reid still throws me off!

Shouldn't you be proud that he's your husband. I can't wait until I can call my boyfriend husband. I feel like a child when I call him "boyfriend".

I think you should be proud of calling him your husband. You had a solid relationship before, now you just made it so you're going in at 100% by getting legally married.

I am proud to say my husband, and I love it when he say I am his wife. :-) It never bothers us because it's a form of respect for each other.

Well no. You're get used to it soon. You were together for so long before you got married that it really doesn't feel any different to you. Believe me I'm speaking from experience. My hubby and I were together for 12 years and just got married. I had already assumed the role of a wife so it's not any different to me now. Hope this helps.

I don't call mine husband I don't know why for sure I called ex my husband and maybe that's why but I do call him my consort which is just another word for husband but usually used with royalty but hey I figured he treats me like his queen something that's pretty new to me and it's also a lot more fun to say you get some funny looks when using it but that's no bother to me or him he absolutely love's it!
