Do you put the butter in the fridge or not?

I always like to put the butter in room temperature so when I use it, it is not hard so it can be spreaded out easy on the bread or pancakes etc. but my hubby always mind me that butter is milk product so I should always keep it in the fridge... but we haven't got any problems since I haven't put the butter in the fridge anymore... What about you? Do you prefer cold hard butter or room temperature butter?
