I've been hearing "wife" from women married to women, and "husband" from men 
married to men.... What's the big deal/issue for the terminology?!

Currently, we wait and listen to know what people call their same-sex 
spouse.   I suspect these names will evolve.

I wonder how many different words are used for someone’s spouse on Ethos.
