Ottawa Journal: Wife/Husband Gender Then and Now

Classification: Query
I apologize if this subject is uncomfortable to some; but, some day, we will deal with this.

Today families exist that have female husbands and male wives. In fact, I remember some couples using "husband" and "wife" for their same gender spouse in the 1970s.

I did not find this subject discussed in earlier posts. I would honestly like to know if it is appropriate to infer gender from the words "husband" or "wife".
