This is a short and sweet post for all of the lovers out there on the day after Valentine's Day. In Spanish class in the United States, we were taught that, 'esposa' means, 'wife'. What we were not told was that in Spain it also means, 'chain.' Language: It always gets the last laugh.
PS For anyone uncomfortable looking at their significant other as a shackle, most men in Spain refer to their wives as, 'mujer,' and women call their husbands by, 'marido.'
