FOB:

Fresh off the boat, a derogatory slang phrase (mostly used in the US) for people of foreign nationality.

Salaam,

 

 - thanks for the reply, I'm glad I asked, for never in a million years would I have figured that one out !

Well, then I guess I am a FOB too, but not all FOB's are created equal - lol.

And yes, communication is the key to any relationship, not only with FOB's, but to be sucessful, it's gotta be a two-way conversation versus a monologue.

So it seems there is no useful male input here regarding my original question... would still appreciate some practical advise on how to deal with my hubbie.

But I guess there is none, I'll have to figure it out by myself....
