A rose by any other name

Husband and I were nestled together in bed when Husband burped three times in quick succession. 'Isn't it so romantic?' he said.
'You see,' I said, 'this is where you're going wrong. Flowers and chocolates are romantic. Writing poetry is romantic. Burping in your loved one's ear isn't.'
'But flowers and chocolates are boring.'

I wonder if it's too late to change him. I'd be willing to take part exchange.

I'm rolling on the floor laughing! I just say something like, "Oh, THAT was lovely!" and move over.
