I am a gay male in my 40"s. I work in a fairly large company. I'm amazed when someone I don't know well overhears a conversation in which I happen to mention my husband, they ask, "Don't you mean your wife?" I try not to get angry but I often do. What should I really say?

Just look at the person directly, and say, "Thank you for asking, but, no, that's not what I meant. I meant exactly what I said." You don't need to say anything else. Your message will be very clear.
