Esposo, Marido

» by in: Nouns

Esposo and marido both mean husband.

But where esposa means wife, marida is not a word.

There is a custom here for a man to call his wife “mi vieja” and a woman to call her husband “mi viejo”. Literally “my old woman” or “my old man”.

    hehe.. that’s funny to us see that. But it’s true.. We call sometimes “my little woman” “my little man”. Minha velhinha , meu velhinho…
