How to use spouse in a sentence?

  1. Karen Saban:

    You think about your spouse or significant other and that is such a meaningful relationship and usually the person you go to when you are under stress, here they are going through this very stressful situation but they’ve kind of lost their main person to get support from.

  2. Beth Asch:

    What we did look at suggests there’s a myriad of underlying causes, and I guess the question is, to what extent those causes are specific to being military. What I mean by that is we know that military personnel move around a lot, they’re asked to change locations every few years, and that can have a financial impact on the spouse and their spouse employment. … Is there something about that, about military service, that’s driving that? We just don’t know. We suspect there could be those factors, but there could be other factors.

  3. Cory Booker:

    I don't think about that in the context of a 2020 run ; I think about it in the context of the career I've chosen. To be a senator, like right now, it's kind of hard to date when you're on the road, as I am right now, where your weekends are spent in three states, look, at a personal level, I really do think about that every day, because I really do think that one of the best titles you can have is a parent and a spouse.

  4. Maria Carrillo:

    We believe, based on the totality of positive data from clinical trials of this treatment, that the FDA should approve. Peer-reviewed, published results show lecanemab will provide patients in the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s more time to participate in daily life and live independently. It could mean many months more of recognizing their spouse, children and grandchildren.

  5. William H Gass:

    We have scarcely gotten home ... when our children's sneezes greet us, skinned knees bleed after waiting all day to do so. There is the bellyache and the burned-out basement bulb, the stalled car and the incontinent cat. The windows frost, the toilets sweat, the body of our spouse is one cold shoulder and the darkness of our bedroom is soon full of the fallen shadows of our failures.
