I don't like the sound of "the wife", but I can't say it'd bother me as much as "the present wife". What? Are you planning on replacing me with another one very soon???
My husband doesn't introduce me very often because he is pretty shy and sometimes he doesn't remember names well. (Not mine, but theirs. LOL!) So I just take it upon myself to introduce myself...it gets the job done and it doesn't make Mozz uncomfortably trying to remember the person's name.
