I have to say that this is something you would only really say while enjoying a beer with your close buddies or when talking with someone with a basic education from a village in the countryside; in any other context, this will be considered offensive, or at least off the mark.


Can "femeia lui" also be translated "his wife"?


As much as "his woman" can be used to mean "his wife". Which is to say that it would seem somewhat crude.


Ok, thanks! I was wondering because the English translation here does sound kind of crude/strange to me. I'd heard that bărbat can be used to mean husband as well as man, so I was wondering if it worked the other way around.


I swear, sentences here are nuts sometimes :D So much so, even if I understand all the words in the sentence, I still doubt myself if I am not missing anything in the meaning.


A little offensive possibly?


This sentence is obejctifying women!
