Thanks for the additional information. It is helpful.
Given that your husband was home with them the majority of time while you were gone, it is likely that he was the disciplinarian when they did things they shouldn't have. He likely was the one that enforced most of the rules as well. When the dogs were alone with him, he was the only one able to give them attention and being the one in charge of their life basically, they would feel like they needed to fawn over him.
Men also naturally have a lower tone of voice. Dogs see lower tones as reprimands or commands. Often dogs will see the man as the boss naturally. In this case, he was likely the disciplinarian and has a lower tone voice.
However, now that you are home, they have someone that will show them attention and they likely see you less of a boss and more of an equal. They might also view you as a visitor. As such, they would feel more comfortable just hanging around you. You also are more likely to show them attention more than he does at this point since he was around them all the time.
Conversely, if he wasn't much of a disciplinarian, they may not see him as the boss at all and thus sat with him because he was the only one there. Now that you are here and still relatively new, they are focused on you. As time goes by, they will probably spend an equal amount of time with both of you. You may find that one becomes your dog an the other one bonds more with your husband.
What I would suggest at this point is that each of you obedience trains the dogs. If the dogs are opposite sexes, then let him train the female and you the male. Training will help reinforce the bonds with each of you. The following site is helpful in helping owners train their dog. Be sure and click on the link to the page on obedience at the bottom. and links on subsequent pages leading to detailed instructions.
Training works best if you train at least 30 minutes a day (two 15 minute sessions). I would start making your dog work via the Nothing in life is free program (NILF). It is outlined below.
This should help your husbands relationship with the dogs and you have the benefit of having 2 very well behaved dogs that listen all the time.
