DW ?

I have seen lots of references to the "DW"; exactly what does this reference mean. ??? It seems to me that it is a negative spousal reference........

When I first got into this lifestyle, I thought it meant Dishwasher, until I found out that was me!

An alternative to DW is SWMBO. Fans of Rumpole of the Bailey will be able to translate "She who must be obeyed".

Also known as CinCHouse. (CinC = Commander in Chief)

"I am master of my house.
Whatever my wife wishes
shall be done."

I always have the last say - usually out of earshot.

I had my wife on her knees begging last night. She said " come out from under that bed and fight like a man "

There is a gentleman in our camping group that has educated us in proper "marriage language". When ever our spouses say something, our proper response is " Yes Dear".
