Examples of wives in a Sentence

  1. George Gordon Byron:

    Wives in their husbands' absences grow subtler, And daughters sometimes run off with the butler.

  2. Chilson Foy:

    Exactly, we had just seen each other for the first time in months. You do what husbands and wives do. But later, when I'm feeling sick, I'm not having any sort of relations. I think any transmission event would have happened very soon after I got back, before I got symptoms.

  3. George Sand:

    If they are ignorant, they are despised, if learned, mocked. In love they are reduced to the status of courtesans. As wives they are treated more as servants than as companions. Men do not love them: they make use of them, they exploit them, and expect, in that way, to make them subject to the law of fidelity.

  4. Ryan Mauro:

    These men are interested in having ‘wives’ come to the so-called caliphate to live with them.

  5. Margaret Oliphant Oliphant:

    The incomprehensibleness of women is an old theory, but what is that to the curious wondering observation with which wives, mothers, and sisters watch the other unreasoning animal in those moments when he has snatched the reins out of their hands, and is not to be spoken to! . It is best to let him come to, and feel his own helplessness.
