    I have noticed that as well when I'm talking to others about friends of mine (couples).  If I say "We went to visit B and his husband last week" there's a definite jolt.  "B and his partner", maybe just a blink.  But hey, they got married legally in the District of Columbia last year, just in time for the arrival of their twins (as they joke, they wouldn't want the kids to have unwed parents!), so I'll use the husband word and let folks get used to it.
