    I will probabaly get slapped around for asking this but it's very confusing, they call Ellen Degeneres female partner "her wife", they are both female, does this mean that Ellen is "the husband" how do they determine who is the wife and who is the husband, I hope this isn't an offensive question, I find it very interesting.
    When introducing Ellen to somebody does Ellen's Wife say "I'd like you to meet my husband"-------:confused:

    Think your apartment's too small or your house is a touch cramped? Well, get ready to feel even worse about your pad when you get a peek inside Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi's 9,500-square-foot estate, which comes complete with a media room (where the two were married), giant pool, meditation room, pond, and some very big closets.

    I'm just curious, how did they come to the conclusion that Ellens girlfriend is the "wife" also doesn't that mean that Ellen is "the husband"

    It is probably their business, not ours.. what happens behind bedroom doors, stays there.

    Harry, for all of his accusations and bullying of the "leftie loon" preoccupation with Hollywood wife-swappers, drunks, players and sluts, seems to have a little preoccupation of his own going on.

    Here is you definitive and final answer Harry.

    No man can be a wife and no woman can be a husband. By definition, a husband is a man and a wife is a woman.

    There you go!

    1. a married man, especially when considered in relation to his wife.
    Husband | Define Husband at Dictionary.com

    -A husband is a male participant in a marriage.

    Husband - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A wife is a female partner in a marriage. The rights and obligations of the wife regarding her spouse(s) and others, and her status in the community and in law, varies between cultures and has varied over time.

    Wife - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    end of story....

    Hate to break this to you but no one gives a crap. Have you met Ellen and "her wife?" Has their "marriage" had an impact on your life?

    According to Webster's any female partner in a marriage can be defined as a wife so they both can be one. The assumption that a marriage consists of a husband and wife causes some confusion but that assumption is understandable considering that's how it's been in the world....for the most part anyway.

    Not many adults would actually be confused.

    Thank God, the answer, I really never knew there could be such a thing as "two wives" in one marriage, I assume this is the same in a male relationship, "two husbands"
    Thank You For The Sensible Answer
    Thats all I wanted to know but I suppose with my reputation I can see how the good folks on here would get upset.

    i've always heard people in gay couples referred to as spouses or partners or even husband and husband before

    maybe those 2 refer to each other as wife....

    i'd say people care too much about other's lifestyles

    i mean, neil patrick harris is fn hilarious, and he's gay as ****

    same with ellen

    i'm sure some nfl players you've rooted for are gay, it just doesn't really matter
