NOT "husbands" not "wives".

SPOUSES!

Look up the etymologies of "husband" and "wife" and "spouse".

"Spouse" is FAR older and speaks directly to the non-Medieval relationships we have today.

Personally, I don't need or want to be "husbanded".

Shouldn't that read 'SPICE'(the plural of 'spouse')

Frankly, I don't mind being referred to as "WIFE" and neither does my "WIFE".......and it shouldn't matter how any couple wants to be addressed:-)

How does that happen. The words husband, wife, and spouse are already widely used. They aren't going away.

Normally, I love words, and definitions, and learning how they developed and evolve.

Sadly, right now, the day before Easter, my little girl is teaching me the definition of a new word.

Can you say Norovirus, and use it in a sentence?

Sigh....

I don't like disagreeing with you, Snyper, but I have both a husband and a spouse. Just depends on the moment in which I use either term. And I really LOVE using "husband" when talking to someone who opposes Marriage Equally. I just wait for the spinning of their head. "Spouse" in that situation does does not have the impact that "husband" does.
