    It all depends on contaxt. Sometimes I call my hubby (pre-hubby, actually) the "ball and chain" in introcuctions as a joke. If I really meant it, well thats a sucky relations and why would we be together if thats really the case? In other situations I would not like to be ignored or known only as "Mikes wife". I have a name, I have an identity. At our wedding, when we are introduced at the reception, my name MUST be acknowledged.

    Seriously, I don't understand why English blokes get so embarrassed about their wives so that they have to refer to her as some sort of object.


    Historically, under British law (and American law, which is based on the British common law system), women were considered to be "chattels," a word used to describe a certain type of property. It could be that this is one of the last vestiges of that characterization.

    It hate this expression and would NEVER use it....The reason...The wife would give me a good knee in the #@$

    The other thing that I think should be thought about is the habit of refering to "the wife" as Mrs.(insert name of hubby) Smith.

    Damm..Most gave up their last name at marriage and now we need their first name to.

    It's objective truth.
