A '''spouse''' is a partner in a [[marriage]], [[civil union]], [[domestic partnership]] or [[common-law marriage]]. The term is [[gender]] neutral, whereas a male spouse is a [[husband]] and a female spouse is a [[wife]]. Therefore the term may be used in both [[Polygamy|polygamous]] and [[monogamy|monogamous]] [[Heterosexuality|opposite-sex]] relationships and [[Homosexuality|same-sex]] relationships. Although a spouse is a form of [[significant other]], the latter term also includes non-marital partners who play a social role similar to that of a spouse, but do not have rights and duties deserved by law to a spouse.

A spouse is a partner in a marriage, civil union, domestic partnership or common-law marriage. The term is gender neutral, whereas a male spouse is a husband and a female spouse is a wife. Therefore the term may be used in both polygamous and monogamous opposite-sex relationships and same-sex relationships. Although a spouse is a form of significant other, the latter term also includes non-marital partners who play a social role similar to that of a spouse, but do not have rights and duties deserved by law to a spouse.
