Well of course it was going to happen - he was married to her. So he's used to saying that name when he's talking to his significant other - it's habit. And you've only been together a few weeks. If he's constantly saying it or still doing it a couple months down the road, or during sex, then you can worry about it a little. And even if it was during sex - once is a silly mistake - if it keeps happening, then give it a little thought.

I agree #8 I call my wife by my sisters name sometimes because she was the only female besides my mother that I had lived with for more than half of my life. But getting rid of somebody because of a simple mistake is a little bit idiotic. But if I was OP I would think before I spoke and make sure I broke the habit haha.

#57 No one wants a debate here. People just tend to comment on my name because they think it is funny. I think they're funny. I have not gotten one reply that doesn't say something about Mary, God, or Jesus.

Most likely OP's boyfriend and his ex were together for a long time, as in many years, and if they have kids together then they still have contact with eachother. It is not hard to understand that he said the wrong name out of habit. He was probably distracted by something and wasn't thinking about what he said. OP's boyfriend could have handled it better though, like for example apologize for it. And try to break the habit.

For his brain, the ex wife's name is still a synonyme for "the person I share my life with". If this slip happened just in the first few weeks, I would rather see it as a compliment because it shows that he subconsciously wants to share his life with the OP. (Yes, it still hurts, of course...)

It is perfectly understandable - I did it for the first few year of our marriage now and again. I think my wife got called by every ex-girlfriends name I ever had. Thankfully my wife could see the funny side and would just state her own name and make a face and grin. Don't let this stop you from having a relationship if that is whqat you want to do.

to the people saying dump him, you are the reason the divorce rate is so high. ready to run off for the slightest thing. It's HUMAN to mess up sometimes and a name slip after a couple weeks is no cause to get rid of who might turn out to be a decent person.
