How to use spouse in a sentence?

  1. John Kirby:

    It is not unusual -- and frankly it can be quite beneficial -- to advancing American interests for the spouse of a cabinet secretary to occasionally travel with him or her. The spouse often engages in separate encounters during such trips meeting with local officials and participating in cultural or educational engagements that flesh out and help inform America's foreign policy.

  2. Ted Futris:

    We found that feeling appreciated and believing that your spouse values you directly influences how you feel about your marriage, how committed you are to it, and your belief that it will last.

  3. Trisha Harp:

    When a couple feels like they are in this together, it supports both members of the team. It’s 'us versus them,' Harp says. For example, my husband calls us 'Team D T.' When spouses on Harp's surveys were asked how they handled stressful financial challenges, their number one answer was, We supported each other fully, she says. Now, of course it's up to both the entrepreneur and the spouse to determine how that support plays out, but, Asking pointed questions like, ‘When you’re stressed out because of the business, what can I do to make you feel supported?’ is always a good idea.

  4. Anuj Somany:

    He who actually works at home like a donkey at the behest of his spouse does basically his job like an ass as an employee in the business house. He could neither be creative like imaginative/ inventive/ innovative nor ever effective like positive/proactive/productive, but can easily endure every humiliation in the private organization and so often stays for over ten years at the single workplace. He spends time with a single objective to make merely money in the company only for his wife throughout his life.

  5. Anuj Somany:

    A stupid laughs his foolish head off on being called by the people the slave of his spouse, but a strong man being a wise heart takes it as a wicked allegation by them and proves it wrong.
