I had this problem too!!  I went to say “boyfriend” one day at work while talking about my husband, and caught myself mid-word…

I ended up calling him my “boy-band” accidentally.  I got lots of laughs from that one!

It was pretty much immediate for us, but we are older (married in our mid 40s, me for the first time, him for the second.)

I’ve been thinking about this. Also about all the drama I have to go through to change my name (which I absolutely want to do) and how I will be signing and have new initials and how I will probably mess it up, like I always mess up writing the year on the date for like 3 months every January! LMAO

Now I can add a new worry – forgetting that he’s my husband and calling him my fiance!

@mrs_pugetsound:  LOL boy-band

I feel so stupid saying “husband” for some reason. He has yet to say “wife”. We always call each other by our first names, and when people say “Where is your husband!”, I’m still like…”WHO?”.

LOL, we’re alright with the husband and wife thing but it’s taking a lot of time to get used to my new last name! I love it, but as a teacher I’ve been called by my maiden name all day for the last two and a half years so it’s quite novel to hear something different!

I’m also realising how many places I’m needing to change my name – I am my maiden name EVERYWHERE.

It was hard getting used to calling him ‘fiance’. And just when I did get used to it he was then my husband. I think I’ve just gotten used to his title now that we’ve been married for several months.

@mrs_pugetsound:  LOL I love it!!!

I still get myself all confused. When we were returning home from our honeymoon and going through customs, they asked us how we were related and we both stood there blinking at each other until I finally said, “Err, boy, er, husband and boy, er, wife.” Bet some red flags went up there, hahaha.

And just last week I got separated from my husband in Home Depot and when an employee asked me if he could help me find something I said, “Yeah! My dang boyfriend!”

Boy-band it is.

@mrs_pugetsound:  That is awesome.

I never liked calling him my fiance, but husband was easier, for whatever reason.  I still get a kick out of it when I hear him refer to me as his “wife,” though. I don’t feel like a wife!

I’ve been married for over a year now and I still giggle inside when I refer to my husband and “husband.”  It does roll off my tongue a little more naturally now, but hasn’t lost the novelty.  I do love buying “husband” cards for his birthday, Valentine’s Day, etc…   Congratulations by the way!

I had to make the adjustment when he went from boyfriend to fiance. It was weird but now it seems natural, hope it’s the same when he becomes my husband in just over 2 months!

I do this at work allll the time. It’s funny because I’ll say ‘my boyfriend’ and immediately there is a chorus of all of my co-workers in the discussion being like, “No, your husband…” lol. I also have to initial things prety frequently at work and still put my old initials a lot…taking a while to adjust.

My husband jokes that he’s going to introduce me to people as his ex-girlfriend.  But we did have a cute moment on the honeymoon when someone referred to me as his girlfriend and he was like, “That’s my wife!”
