Since updating to iOS6, every time I text my husband, the text comes to my phone. Any idea how to stop this?

I little more information might be necessary. Does your husband has iOS6 too? Does it give you any kind of error? Does it only happens with your husband? Is it a SMS or an iMessage? – Thecafremo Sep 25 '12 at 8:42
Is the text also going to his phone or does it only show up on yours? – CajunLuke Oct 8 '12 at 23:40
Are you actually texting your husband, or are you iMessaging him? In other words, is the text shown in green or blue in the Messages app? – Mike Scott Dec 9 '12 at 7:11

Under Settings / Messages / Send and Receive, remove the check mark from your husband's phone number.

This might not be enough though. They might share the same Apple ID/iCloud account for instance... – patrix Oct 7 '12 at 15:37
@patrix You can share the same Apple ID and have isolated iMessage. – Kevin Chen Jan 16 '13 at 7:13
