‘Wusband’ & ‘Mife’ To Become The Words Of 2014

February 1, 2014

Wusband & MifeThe New Abridged National American Society has predicted that the words ‘Wusband’ and ‘Mife’ will be become the words of 2014. Amid the spotlight that gay marriage has taken throughout the country and the lack of any adequate words to describe the partners in same-sex marriages, NANNS has created terms to describe respective couples in old-time terms.

“The word ‘wusband’ will describe the male counterpart for a lesbian couple – like woman-husband – and ‘mife’ will be used to coin the ‘male-wife’ version of a gay couple,” said Homer Saffrows, president of NANNS.

Some groups have called such words insulting and offensive but Mr. Saffrows feels history will bear him out and responded, “We’re America. Catch-phrases alway win out. Think about how easy it will be to have someone say, ‘I now declare you husband and mife’ or ‘This is my wusband Sheila’. It just makes sense.”
