wouldn't ever register with me as something to be offended about. DH's ring tone for me used to be Buck Cherry's "Crazy *****".

Add me to the camp of "wouldn't have given it a second thought." It's not my business how people speak to their own spouse, in public or not, in front of children or not. Unless you personally know the couple and their dynamic, and the context, it's not something that's any of your business to begin with, let alone to make a comment to a stranger about. I'd personally be much more offended by someone listening in and making comments to me about something like that than I would be if I heard someone make the comment.

As many of the PP's have said, couples form their own way of talking to each other and put their own meanings on things.

For example, I have a tendency to wander off, often out of earshot, and often when Db is not looking. If he calls my name, I tend not to hear. But for whatever reason, when he whistles, I know it's him right away and turn to look for him. I'm sure some stranger could see that exchange and think he treats me like i'm a dog. But for us, that's just the easiest/most effective way for him to get my attention in public. Came in handy on black friday, i'll tell ya that! lol.

You'd die if you heard DH and I talk to each other. We always "yell" at each other. He says I need to get in the kitchen and make him a sandwich, I tell him women don't take out the garbage, I'll jokingly refer to him as my "master", and he'll yell "WOMAN" if we're joking around and says he owns me/I'm his property.

We don't mean any of it, but we do it ALOT.

OP, you would be mortified if you saw my DH and I. He will literally walk up and smack my tush in the store. And shopping with my FIL, I don't know how my MIL stayed married to him for 40 years, as he will say the oddest things just to get a rise out of people.

I would say that you have to know the context. I had a friend whose dh was rather bossy and kind of a jerk. When she was pregnant with their first child, he TOLD her that she WOULD breastfeed. She was really upset about it. My response to her was when he grew the necessary parts, he could make that decision. She ended up breastfeeding and he continually referred to her as the "milk truck". I had a very hard time not punching him in the face. I thought it was rather disrespectful. It wasn't like he was helpful in any other way either. I guess he figured he'd done his part when he donated half the dna.

I don't feel bad saying any of that because I knew the context of the situation.

BTW - My ringtone on dh's phone was Meredith Brooks' song with a name for a female dog. I call it my theme song. He did get quite a bit of grief from other people though.

Hmph. I think that movie is pure genius. I'm offended that you're offended by the line.

I do believe that someone needs to get their nose out of other people's business.

I tell my mom I have a lot of **** to do some times and my friends were offended by that go figure they told me how disrespectful I was for saying that with out listening to her side of the conversation. So unless you hear the entire conversation please butt out

Guess you had to be there, all I see is love, respect, and a sense of humor in that comment (and relationship).

What have things become that now even messing around with your loved ones in not PC anymore. Some days I really weep for our future.
Weep for your own future. Crassness and sexist jokes have no place in mine, so no crying necessary.
Keep the Faith!! Peace and Love!!!
