FAQ: The child bride

The reason I sometimes refer to my wife as "the child bride" is partially explained in this post and extends back to when I was a student at the University of Nevada Reno.

A mass communications professor there referred to his wife as "the child bride" because he felt it was more complimentary than "the old lady," or something similar.

Wow, a whole post dedicated to my question! Thanks a whole bunch! And I like your/the mass communication professor's theory. However, you say sex with your old lady doesn't sound very appealing, but to me having sex with a child bride sounds like you are doing something illegal as well. I mean, it reminds me of the girls in India who litteraly marry when they are still a child?
