Having family around during the holidays reminded me of something lacking in my relationship with Husband. My daughters and their spouses all have terms of endearment for each other, “Babe” being the predominant sobriquet of choice. We have never done that, yet it must be something Husband had also been struck by, as recently I heard, “Honey…Babe…what do you think about…?” Never too old to learn from one’s children, I guess, so….I “googled” Terms of Endearment and found this list. After some discussion and trying out a few (Sparky? Schatzi?) we ended up with the old stand-by, “Honey,” or “Honey-pie” (perhaps due to the Beatles tie-in?) with the caveat that it never morphs to “Hun.”
What do you call your significant other?
