Original text on this post:
He means "husband" like "husbandry of livestock," not "husband and wife."

Which is part of the reason I've never really liked the word "husband" to refer to the male part(s) of a marriage; at least "wife" comes from the idea of two things becoming one (And it's better than saying "This here's my cleavage! We was cleaved together!" O_O)
[/it's 2016]

Like, I'm willing to accept that we have a fundamentally flawed and sexist language but that doesn't mean the word "husband" coming from "husbandry of livestock" doesn't always rankle a little when I think about it.
