Have you looked at Love and Logic? I know it isn't super popular here, but I love it. From your post, I'm getting the impression that you tend to practice AP, and your husband does not. Is that...

The beauty of language is so subjective, but I'll take a stab at it with some of the books I love for their language. This is a mix of English-language books and lit-in-trans.
