Because that's what you are, anon, you are the cancer of this forum and even your wife can see that.

 

Got your salary from last week BTW?

Why not ask her why she calls you that? Communication is an integral part of marriage; it won't work without it.

 

My wife calls me a "dirty foreigner," "bastard," "motherfucker," etc., but she says it to my face. We just joke around like that all the time. Is your wife joking?

My wife calls me"hey". I call her "psst".

 

It's just pet names. Madame Mao called her husband Chairman. How weird is that ?

Adolf called his dad "Uncle". Even wierder.

Don't worry about it, your wife's pet name for you does not qualify you as a potential "despot".

I will add: many Chinese refer to their own children/nieces/nephews as, "Little devil," etc. It can be used affectionately. Not that I agree with it - my wife and I usually try to leave the "devil" out of our slurs/insults to each other.

What does she actually say? Bai Ermo? Mogui? or an affectionate Gweilo as my wife's mother calls me?

It's normal. My girlfriend often affectionately calls me "Puk Gaai" (Cantonese for prick) and I reply in kind by calling her a "Pendejo" (Spanish for fool). It's somewhat effective, if we're in a crowded place and I need to find her.. if I yell out her English name, it's unlikely she will hear me. However, when I say "Hey! Pendejo! Where are you?!" she hears me. The same for her. Though I also teach her a lot of good German profanity.

Well calling a boyfriend or husband devil in Chinese does not necessarilly present a negative thing. Just contrary. It can be more 'the play word'.
But I assume that this cannot be your only problem when you cannot get your explanation from your partner or if your partner rejects to stop calling you so despite of the fact it irritates you.
Are you seriously asking such a question on the Internet forum?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
