Often when a conversation moves beyond the weather, it turns to family: Do you have any brothers or sisters? Any children? Husband? Wife?
So let's keep that smalltalk going with a bit of family vocabulary!
Remember that the the possessive adjectives (my, your, his, her, their) will change depending on whether you're talking about a male or a female member of your family. (See the lesson on possessive adjectives for more about this.)
Interesting note: The commonly used word for "wife" is femme, and it literally means "woman". It only becomes "wife" in the right context.
The other words for husband and wife are épouse (wife) and époux (husband), but these are not commonly used in everyday conversation. (épouse is very similar to "spouse" in English, and is used in similar formal situations.)
