Or....."The First Gentleman."

"First Gentleman" is normally the proper term for that postion.

Yes, but "First Gentleman" is a bit awkward to say. I don't see it catching on. I doubt many people will use it in everyday conversation. I think "First Husband" just rolls off the tongue. Of course, "First Husband" does have the potential to sound like it has connotations about divorce. Still, I like it better.

Hey, I like that, but whatever they call him, I am sure he will be happy with it. Well, that might not be the case, but I am sure he is very proud of his wife right now and he should be.
