"The husband has a wife."
Translation:Maritus uxorem habet.
If you're suggesting that the standard is "what happens in many countries" ... Then what about the places where people are actually punished for suggesting anything opposite? Majority does not mean morality. Since this is a language program, why not talk about husbands and wives the way that the classical or medieval Latin speakers would have spoken?
What a great sentence. It fits with what words actually mean, rathet than a popularity contest of errors.
