Is the word "my" in My wife, gender specific to the person talking or to the feminine noun femme? Mon femme (because I, her husband, is speaking) or always Ma femme.

The word 'my' is gender specific to the noun (the feminine noun femme in this case). Therefore, to say my wife, it would always be Ma femme. Also, next time you have a grammatical question like this, it may be better suited to the French discussion forums or the forum for the specific lesson on the topic. Hope this helps!
