I always thought it was darling. You know, like "darling daughter" or "darling wife".
Oh and I'm too hairy to be feminine.
In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
Although I agree with you that the grownup thing to do would be try to work it out, and then failing that, get a divorce (rather than have an affair). But people are human. And they do make mistakes. And in a loveless marriage, temptations are greater, I am sure.
Sex is an expression of love. Refusing to have sex with your spouse all the time is akin to saying "I don't love you." As far as I'm concerned, wives who tell their husbands that they don't love them every day are asking for their husbands to look for love, affection and intimacy in other places.
I know someone who refers to people as their "Dear Daughter" and "Dear Husband." It's annoying as hell. Although... I call my husband "My Beefcake." I'm sure that annoys people, too.
