For some reason I always thought this is what STBXH stood for on Mumsnet. Now I find myself having to use the acronym myself I confess I'm (just) disappointed at what it really is. grin

Oh don't be disappointed! Soon to be XH is to be celebrated!
Although it's better when they're just XH. That's sweeeeeeeeet.

I like yours though! Before I used it, I always thought on glancing that the B was for Bastard, and was disappointed to be wrong grin

In my mind it was always: Soon to be ex-husband.

Hence Dear STBXH...

But I was once married to a shitbag.

And he intended to be an ex-husband.

And, I marry a wrong 'un....

I'm still working on correcting the wrong.

So you decide what it means for you. I'm not going to argue. Take care and good luck.

I thought it was stab the bastard ex husband??? Isn't that what it used to say in the MN acronyms list I'm sure? Else where did I get stab the bastard from?

Soon to be ex husband. I think I may have been the first poster to use it, around 8/9 years ago, so I feel a bit proprietary about it wink Definitely nothing to do with stabbing, as MN is officially opposed to domestic violence even when arguably justified.

Shit bag works too, of course.
