    Yes, yes it is.

    Unless you are a feminist.

    No, no it isn't.

    Thanks for speaking for us, but no. Quite frankly I, as a feminist, couldn't give a toss if a guy calls his fiancee his girl.

    It's a bit immature and chavvy, in my opinion- try to imagine George Clooney going "This is my girl"- but I wouldn't say disrespectful. If it's just between the two of you, e.g. "How's my girl doing today?" it's not as bad.

    Ofcourse it is. She is no longer his girl but instead his biatch.

    It's not as bad as saying "the missus".

    Its usually used by a man who's hen-pecked eg "sorry man I can't come, I promised the missus that I'd do such and such".

    Why does everyone hate the word 'missus'? I actually love that word.

    Yes it is, he should be humiliated in public & then taken away & locked-up forever!

    Who cares?! I wouldn't, I think it sounds sweet. It depends, it's an individual thing, some people might think nothing of it whilst others might have more of a problem with it.
    You'll know in the future if you call your fiancee that & she turns around & chastises you for it!

    I hate the word 'missus' btw, sounds so cheap! Yuck! My future husband will definately not be allowed to call me that!

    it depends if it is meant as a term of endearment or a form of patriarchy

    Nope. It is kind of true - she's his 'girl' and he's her 'guy'.

    I don't see what's wrong with that... I don't mind it at all, and have been known to call him 'the mister'.

    Ask her? You can call her what you want if she is happy with it.
