Yes, Konstantin, "SO" is internet shorthand for "significant other", which is an all inclusive and therefore more politically correct term. It includes spouses, boyfriend/girlfriend, life partners of all possible gender combinations, etc. So, you would be addressing a person whose SO happened to have a more active job as opposed to addressing a woman whose husband has a more active job. Broader relevance that way without the gender stereotypes.
