    I am confused as to the meaning of significant other, since to me it only means married partner, although my friends use it to mean long term partners..so in my context, when I was married, the answer to your question is no, I had not...

    Well no, but I did once have a girlfriend with the same name as my wife. That certainly makes things easier smile

    Yes, definately, I called my S.O. a "drunk!" That's when she threw the bottle at me. But the good news is, that relationship taught me a lot...

    I frequently call my loved ones by the wrong name, but normally just by the name of another loved one within the family - like mixing up the names of family members or my partner. I sometimes joke "no, not you, the other one".

    It would  be a bit more tricky if I called my partner by the name of an ex, but somehow my dizzy brain seems to know not to overstep the mark and I don't think I have ever done that......there must be a safety valve in there somewhere - or maybe the exes no longer occupy an important place in my life.
