When many people think of pet names, “darling” is one of the first ones they come up with. For most younger people in the U.S., ‘darling’ is very old fashioned and not really preferred.

What Is A Better half?

A Better half is your companion or partner, usually wife or husband.

In the U.S., married couples are viewed as a team. When you’re introducing your spouse you might call them your ‘better half.’ Literally you’re saying they are better than you.
