I've tried to figure this out myself, googling and searching the forums, and I understand from context it means a partner, but what does it stand for?

Designated Wife? Da- Wife?

I always thought it was Dear Wife, not sure if I made that up or what. And there's DH (Dear Husband), DD (Dear Daughter) etc, you'll find many variations around the forums :)

This just inspired me to finally look up NB. Something like "it should be noted," as expected.

Also, ETA does *not* mean Estimated Time of Arrival on forums :oops: It means "Edited to Add".
