    AmatukaNote: 主人 is non-PC (because it can also be used to mean 'master'). I think 夫(おっと) is more common now ... 
    MikiWhen I talk about "my" husband, I would say 夫 but talk about other's husband, we don't use 夫 and usually use ご主人。 
    Mikinote : When you talk about "your" wife, you'd say 妻(つま)、家内(かない)、or 女房(にょうぼう). And when you talk about other's wife, 奥様(おくさま)。 
    your nameBut we don't have a custom to call somebody's husband by name though it has been changing.
    ah, だんな is also used but this may be also 考え直すべき問題??

    AmatukaI think it was what was talked about in this book that I was thinking of. (Not that I've read it myself ;-)
    Amatuka> だんな [...] may be also 考え直すべき問題??
    I'd guess so - but it isn't my language for me to be 考え直すing. ;-)
