BH has 2 meanings
1. What is a BH?

Better half

A BH is a person's "better half," which refers to the person's partner, such as a bf/gf or spouse. It is most often used online and in text messages.

The purpose of the BH acronym is twofold: 1) It communicates that a person has a partner, 2) and it compliments the partner by saying that he or she is the better half of their whole relationship. While BH primarily refers to a romantic partner, it may also be used in the context of a dear friend with who you spend a lot of time.

The "better half" phrase comes from the idea that two people have come together to form one, inseparable entity. This is usually publicly declared in a marriage ceremony where two people come together, with each making up half of this new lifeform.
