This is one of my biggest pet peeves!
Question, Miss, would you like or appreciate your husband calling another woman bae, babe, sweetheart, boo-boo, sweets, hun, love etc?
Question Mr, would you be comfortable if your wife was being called sexy, yummy, sweetness, bae et cetera by another man?

I know your answer(s), and it’s capital NO! NO! NO!
Unless you are not emotionally invested in your husband or wife, then that name calling would sting if you ever hear your spouse unashamedly calling someone else your pet name(s).
You know why, they are called #reserved #names.
For those who did programming like me, we know what reserved names are.
They are simply that, RESERVED.
They cannot be used to identify something or anything.
I would like to borrow that for this topic.
Let’s be real and call a spade a spade. It’s just not right!
Mr. X, call that lady her name, period!
Miss and Mrs. call that man by his name!
Call people by there names, especially the opposite sex! They won’t die! They won’t go into convulsions! They won’t get sick!
Infact it will give you the discipline needed in marriage.
Mr. I cannot understate the fact that if you keep calling that lady sexy, and you cannot call wife anything, nothing at all, one day, you will have a lady who feels entitled to you clashing with your wife.
Probably you weren’t emotionally attached but believe me, you opened up the canyon and made her feel as if she could confide in you.
Those names you keep calling her linger when she’s eating, walking, sleeping, in the office, in class [she knows she’s sexy to you].
The only person who deserves the “mumumuz” and the boo-boo name(s) is the person you are in a relationship with or are married to – to the rest, please call them their names.
Don’t go calling other men, especially the married and other people’s fiance boo-boo and darling, love, handsome etc!
Call them by their names!
Be disciplined!
Call me traditional or backward but that’s simply it.
Very simple. Call them Andrew, Moses, or James!
Call her Mary, Tess, Polly.
Marriage requires discipline, and that discipline starts now.
It requires Love as a decision, discipline, commitment, prayers and a whole lot of effort, everyday.
That is the discipline am talking about.
Reserving names your beloved one!
Reserve those names for the one you love!
Make them feel special.
You want someone someday to respect your husband, respect other ladies husbands too!
Keep those pet names for the one God will bring you.
You want someone someday to respect your wife, please quit calling her boo-boo and “sexiness”and she’s not even close to be your girlfriend!
