New Manosphere Word!

Hear ye! Hear ye!

An uncommon word has surfaced in the Manosphere (link below) and it must be spread widely. The word is:

Uxorious

Definition:

Excessively fond of or submissive to a wife

This is a spectacular word in its laser beam focus on something that happens to too many married men who lack Charisma. This is a word for Athol Kay (link below).

So, I challenge all Manosphere bloggers to use this word at least once in your coming posts.

You’re welcome.

    I first heard that word in the movie The English Patient. The character Geoffrey Clifton claims to have uxorious love for his wife, Katherine. Katherine cheats on him, which is the central plot of the movie.

    Interesting game lesson there.

      It’s funny how so many of the movies where women cheat on guys they’re in relationships with …
      are called sensational love stories.
      Bridges of Madison County, Titanic, The English Patient.

      There needs to be a sensational love story of a man who cheats on a woman.
      After all, since men and women are equal, that should not be a problem.

    This word isn’t new to me; I’ve seen it before.

    I think we should make up a new word: “cuckoldrous”–which we may define as behaving like a cuckold would behave to a wife, even if you are not literally a cuckold—yet.

    I seem to remember P.G. Wodehouse being rather fond of it.

    There is a sadly appropriate mention of its antonym over at OED:

    “There’s no word in common use that can be used to describe a wife who is similarly fond of her husband. The only candidate is the invented word maritorious, from the Latin word for a husband, maritus. But it’s extremely rare: the 20-volume historical Oxford English Dictionary has only two examples, one from 1607 and one from 1978.”

    Plus ça change….

      Rare in use. They’re are plenty of woman in fucked up relationships with d-bags.The condition of humanity is sad like that.

        No doubt true, but there are plenty of men in relationships with harridans, harpies and d-bags of the distaff variety. That doesn’t explain the curious anomaly of its antonym being notable by its absence. Unless, of course, men are viewed as being merely disposable.

    The same things change their names at such a rate;
    For instance—passion in a lover’s glorious,
    But in a husband is pronounced uxorious.
    - Lord Byron, Don Juan C3 S6

    My readers are an intelligent and well-read bunch. It never ceases to amaze me.

    Could a PUA be called Uxorious? Or is it strictly for the married/LTRs?

    Now I have a much nicer word for it. That’s getting used very soon.
