@Nevermore Yeah, this has basically been so much of my experience having married a Dutch woman. We go over to the Netherlands to see her family regularly, and while I speak dutch around them (albeit a little shakily), the moment I'm in public there's just been no point in trying. By the end of the sentence they start talking back in English.

My wife tells me to not let it bother me, but dammit I am trying. She's completely fluent in my language, I want to be in hers.
