Pet Names in Public

Is it improper (lack of tznius) for a husband and a wife to call each other: darling, sweety, cuddly, etc. in front of others? or is it only improper to touch each other in public? Or is that mutar also?
Thanks for your reply.


In general, the special affection that characterizes the husband-wife relationship should not be displayed in public.

This certainly includes touching (in a manner that expresses affection). The question of using pet names depends a little on the society in question. In a society that is sensitive to such names, and reserves them for the level of husband-wife intimacy, they would not be appropriate for public use.

Best wishes.
