  5. "Nghệ thuật là vợ của tôi."

"Nghệ thuật vợ của tôi."

Translation:The art is my wife.

If this means that the speaker is married to art in general, "the" is not correct. "The" means that the referenced art is either a specific art or art in some specific work.

I agree completely Dan.

we would say, "I'm married to art," rather than saying it's my wife. Married to is a figurative phrase, whereas my wife is very literal.

"I play flute" vs "The art is my wife". Switch "the" and it will be correct.
