A Dumb Question

What does DH stand for? Many of you ladies say DH when referring to your husband. So what's it stand for?

LOL, thanks for replying. At first I thought it meant dear husband, but then I wondered if you ladies would really refer to your hubby as "dear" especially when many of you mention the flubs he makes.. Then I thought well, maybe it means DIY Handyman.

Thanks for clearing it up.

"dear" is a traditional form of salutation as well as a term of endearment whether used sincerely, facetiously, or ironically. Today no one seems to know what they mean so you need to be able to go with the flow, as they say.
