Legally binding yourself to one person in the eyes of society and the law, "til death do you part" (or in 50% of the cases, divorce).
This sometimes happens between two people who love each other: boyfriend and girlfriend become husband and wife. If you are a female and are married to a male, you have a husband. If you are male and are married to a female, you have a wife.
