I call her “dear” more than honey.

Sweetheart or wife. She calls me husband and lots of other nice words. The grandkids call us Papou and Yiayia (Greek) so we use those sometimes too. We have no Greek background, but our daughter picked our names after the other grandparents insisted on being called grandpa and grandma. One of our good friends told us “Those kids could call you anything and you would still buy them ice cream”.

Just like a gangster wannabe, I’ve called my girl “Doll” for the last fifty years and will continue to do so. But, her real name is “Beautiful”.

I only call my husband ‘Honey’ when I forget who I am talking to when I’m distracted. He made it quite clear decades ago that he didn’t like pet names or terms of endearment. I think we’ve been married 420 years, at least it seems like it having to remember all the rules I mustn’t break.

We are from Maryland, where “Hon” is used often, by many. Including me 🙂

Hi, Don. You married Carol when she was 4? Talk about “robbing the cradle.” 😆 Have a good afternoon/evening. 🙂 –Diane

My hubby told me in no uncertain terms when we got married that he does not like terms of endearment.
