Do you use honorific with your married spouse?

What is the common practice in marriage as far as using honorifics? Do married people speak to each other casually or informally? Does it matter if the age difference is large? I am married to someone 10 years older than me, but in the US everyone speaks casually.

Most couples will not use honorifics, regardless of the age gap. Decades ago, in our parents and grandparents’ generations, it used to be fairly common for the woman (usually younger) to use honorifics to her husband. However, this is no longer the norm and you would be considered even weird if you use honorifics to your husband / boyfriend. There are definitely couples that still do that, but very uncommon.
