There are many words in the english language that I can't stand, 'moist' being one of them. Amazeballs, totes (used seriously), and pimple also join the hated words list. It's just something about them that makes my skin crawl. Recently, with half of my Facebook getting married, the words: Hubby, Hubs, Hubster, and yes, Husband make me want to vomit on my keyboard. They too have made their way to that long list of words that should never be used. EVER.
I never thought it was possible to ruin a word with such meaning but it's happened and I swear it's getting worse by the second. Let's go back in time/look up in the dictionary and talk about what a Husband really is. Some definitions use "master of the house" and "a man joined to another person in marriage"
You may notice that either of those definitions relate your husband to a pet animal or little kid. Shocker. You can also scroll down and see the related words category...
Back when social media became... well, social media... we felt like we needed to update anyone and everyone about our lives. "Look at me! I graduated" "My first job!" "Just bought my first car!" --- you name it, we all shared it. As time went on, my feed almost felt like a competition. Sarah got into a relationship, so Anna needed to be in one too. Sarah got married and had babies, so Anna needed to get married and have babies. Now that Sarah and Anna have the best lives in the world and they love their husbands so much... they need to share that too...
"Hubby cooked me dinner tonight! He's so sweet to me!"
"My hubs just did all of the yard work, I am just beyond blessed to have him in my life"
"My husband and I love spending time together. He's my everything. I am so glad we got married 3 years, 4 days, and 10 hours ago."
You're husband this... you're husband that... W E G E T I T. You love your husband, YOU MARRIED HIM. Stop bragging about it and enjoy your marriage. It's YOUR marriage after all, it's not meant to be shared to the universe.
Between a husband and wife. Not husband and wife and Facebook. And finally, Be PROUD to call him your husband. Not hubs, hubby, or hubster. If you like those names, great, but does HE like those names? I really am interested in knowing what he thinks about them.
One more thing: please stop showing your hand with your wedding ring every time you paint your nails a different color. Your ring is beautiful, we know, keep it to yourself.
