Oh give it a rest.  The whole PC thing has gone completely over the top.
It's human nature to want to categorize things.  People spend entirely too 
much time worrying and being offended about such things.  
Nobody really cares if you are offended or not.  

WIFE, WOMAN, GF, SWMBO, Ball and Chain, whatever.  
What matters is how you treat them, not how you refer to them in a group
of your peers.  If you really didn't care for them, you most likely wouldn't 
still be with them.

Mark (not offended by fat/bald, as it's true)
