Why the elderly use pet names with their wife

Bernie was eating dinner at a friend’s home when he noticed that Morris, the dinner host, preceded every request to his wife by endearing terms, calling her Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, Pumpkin, etc.

Bernie was impressed.  He looked at Morris and remarked, “That is really nice, that after all these years that you have been married, you keep calling your wife those sweet pet names.”

Morris hung his head and whispered,” To tell the truth, I forgot her name three years ago.”
