uxorious (uk-SOR-ee-us); adj. dotingly or inordinately fond of, or devoted to, one's wife. . .
Sheesh; they make it sound like a bad thing. . .
I was recently reading a biography of GK Chesterton, one of my 'literary heroes', and the author described Chesteron, who was extremely devoted to his beloved wife Frances, as 'uxorious'. And I wondered, at least on the basis of what I've posted here (or there) over the years, if I could justly be described as uxorious. . .
I don't really think that I dote on Jen (I'm not nearly selfless enough for that to be said of me). And gosh, if one's wife is honestly and truly admirable, is her husband's fondness for her really 'inordinate' or 'excessive'?
Just wondering. . . ;)
