As is par for me, I send out an email asking people to update their contact information so that I may have an updated address book. This year, for the first time, I added the "Spouse" line. The Microsoft contact cards actually have a detail tab where you can add extraneous information such as birthdays, manager's names, assistant's names, etc. There has always been a spouse line, but I left it relatively unused until recently, when all of my friends started getting married. I started to find myself talking about "him" because I couldn't remember their names for the life of me.

I added this line into my updates. Seeing how many of my friends are still NOT married, the replies were hilarious (most names changed to protect privacy). I think the word "spouse" really threw people for a loop:

  • Spouse: HA! Not yet.

  • Spouse: Change's with the wind :)

  • Spouse: Hugh Jackman

  • Spouse: We're not married, but I've moved in with John Smith, so... Partner: John Smith

  • Spouse: I wish. But, no time for that.
