Default What does DH stand for?

I see people say like. "My DH and I did this" or "I'm cruising with my DH" What does it stand for? Dumb husband? Desperate housewife?

Common question! DH= Dear Husband, and DW= Dear Wife

I'm so glad someone finally asked this question. I too always wondered what it stood for. Now I know!!! Thanks for asking.

I just guessed it meant Dear Husband or Hubby, but did wonder if even that was right.

The "D" can have multiple meetings, depending on your mood & the context! (Dear, Darling, Dumb, Ditzy....). For a long time, I was amazed that so many of my online friends had husbands with the same initials/nickname, so don't feel bad!

Haha good to clear that up I knew the H and W stood for husband and wife considering the context but couldn't figure out teh D. I thought it stood for Damn.

Don't forget DS, DD, SIL, DIL:
Dear Son, Dear Daughter, Son-in-law, Daughter-in-law. SIL could also be sister-in-law. and the list goes on...BIL, MIL, FIL. Hmmm, funny, I don't recall seeing mother or father shortened, but for them we have Mom and Dad, which are short already.

Personally, I alternate between using DH and hubby.

I'm sorry but you all left the door wide open on this one. Depending on my mood and time of day I usually can refer to my hubby as a "DH". Although in most cases it refers to him as simply "D*$k head"! LOL Of course, I am the only one who basically reads it that way. I luv my man don't get me wrong, but sometimes it just frankly fits!

AGREED! I don't understand how typing two letters is THAT much of a shortcut when referring to your spouse (unless you don't know how to type and use the "hunt and peck" method of typing). I will be sailing with my husband and two beautiful little boys. LOL

The overuse of acronyms is one of the things that drives me bonkers about this site. Could it take THAT much effort to type stuff out? Sometimes I need a translator just to understand some of the posts :/
