Uxorial

Uxorial means of, or relating to, a wife. I'm not sure how useful the word is in everyday conversation, but it must be more useful than uxorious which means to be excessively fond of one's wife. Speaking as a married woman I can't see how such fondness could possibly be excessive.

btw, I've just become aware some people's comments had just vanished. If that happened to you I'm sorry - they never reaced me so I didn't know you'd tried.

I've now made a setup change which I believe has solved the problem.

    1. Would I? Well OK I might, but in this case I didn't.

  3. Possibly not a word for daily use, but great to know for Scrabble. Xs without Es are rare :-)

  5. My dictionary says that uxorious also means excessively dependant on one's wife. So I guess that means me.

  9. There is no such thing as uxorious.
    That word was thought up by men who never belonged to wives.

  10. I'm sure every woman wishes her husband would be more uxorious. ;)

  14. Hi Patsy, that photo is full of uxorius happiness. You look deliriously happy. Love your colours, they blend together well, like you and Gary. It's like luxurious, in another form maybe.
