Not being married, but being referred to as wifey or hubby

Badass Badass
Have you had this?
My boyfriend has recently started calling me wifey, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I know he is just showing me affection, but I'm not his wife.
He has mentioned wanting me to call him hubby, but I'm not sure I feel comfortable with that.
Anyone have any recommendations?

I wish I could get my boyfriend to call me wifey, especially considering the fact that it doesn't seem like we'll be married for years to come.

Seriously, talk to him about it and say just what you said above. If he wants to call you wife, and you call him hubby then where's the ring? I am being slightly sarcastic, but you should still talk to him. I would feel uncomfortable too.

It's quite natural for a couple to use such terms, when they're in a long and steady relationship. You don't have to do that if you're not comfortable with it, why don't you patiently explain to him the reason making you not wanting to do so.

Why does this make you uncomfortable? What are your expectations for this relationship? Do you view this as a lack of paper commitment or is there a deeper issue? I would love to give my opinion, but there are too many wild cards that are unanswered.

My husband used to do this to me too, only because we were SO close and acted like a married couple that we pretty much knew it was going to happen LOL.

If you don't feel comfy with it, don't do it. Tell him that Unless he puts a ring on that finger, that is a privilege that he hasn't earned yet (and of course, say it with some humor and smile lol).

Don't refer to each other in that way. Friends tease us about being a married couple but that's about it.

My girlfriend and I are frequently referred to as the old married couple by our friends. They call us each other's wives even though we know we aren't married. She also calls me her wife when she writes letters or sends sweet text messages to me. It makes me happy because I know it will be a while until we are able to get married.

As for your case, if you aren't comfortable with it, tell him so.
