Today's word of the day is uxorial. It's spelled U-X-O-R-I-A-L. Uxorial is an adjective that means related to the characteristics of a wife.

The Latin word for wife is uxor (OOK sor). While the word can be used in any context that refers to a wife, it is probably most appropriate to use this old world sounding word in an old world context, such as: 

Linda didn't enjoy her marriage to George. She found that being married to an older man meant living up to old-fashioned uxorial standards.

Once again, uxorial is spelled U-X-O-R-I-A-L.
