Visa application: Name of SPOUSE


Today I’m giving you another useful word, SPOUSE. This can be used instead of “husband” or “wife” and is commonly found in official situations. When you apply for a passport or visa or even when opening a bank account, there is usually a question about whether you are married or not. If you answer yes, then you’ll need to reply to the next question: name of spouse.

When an invitation to a wedding, cocktail party or some other event is addressed such:

  • Ms Smith and spouse, the both Mrs Smith and her husband can attend the function.
  • Mr Darwin and spouse, then both Mr Darwin and his wife can attend the function.

The same applies if it’s a same-sex marriage.

Use the language

Do you have a word for spouse in your language? What is it and when is it used?
