Can you call another person "minh" refering to them as "you"?

I know that you can call yourself "minh" referring to yourself as "I", but I have seen some rare cases where somebody calls another person "minh".

In what situation is this appropriate?

    in vietnam family, sometime the husband call his wife "mình" "mình ơi anh đi đây" ..darling i'll go..ect and she also can call him with that way . between husband and wife we have a lot of way to call each other such as: mình và tôi.mình và em, mình và anh ....
    in friendship you can use "mình" for yourself ex: mình và bạn it means i and you.

    It is like Vietnamese tradition, we can call ourselve as " minh" and also can do with another person to express the close relationship that only appears in family with husband and wife. Furthermore, call " minh" means that perosn is one of your part, your own and have an importion positon in your life.
