adjective: Excessively devoted or submissive toward one's wife.
From Latin uxor (wife). The feminine counterpart of this word is maritorious. Earliest documented use: 1598.
"Mostly, though, Harold Pinter is uxorious -- showering his wife with flowers, poems, jewellery, and impeccably chosen books. It is rare to read of a modern marriage maturing into such singular devotion."
