#atozchallenge – U for Uxorious

Hey there U, it’s U! How are U doing? Happy U day everyone, to celebrate, we’re going to talk about this little gem I found this morning: 

Uxorious
/ˌəkˈsôrēəs/
Adjective: Having or showing an excessive or submissive fondness for one’s wife.

Uxorious… I am not sure this is something desirable. I mean, on one hand it sounds ab fab to have a husband totally dote and hang on your every desire, need, and word.  Who wouldn’t want to know their spouse was truly that attentive? But in reality that begins to cross the line into stalkerdom, no?  Perhaps balance and moderation here is what’s best for us all in the fondness category. I love you, see you on date night.

Also, what does it say about the world that there is no word for the reverse? Don’t wives have or show excessive fondness for their husbands? Hmmm.

I totally adore someecards.com. The gift of being able to say many of the say things out loud that I would only dare think in my head… and do so with such style and panache.  *sigh*
