My wives

Yet another learning Spanish anecdote today.

Blissfully unaware, I have been saying “mis mujeres” when referring to my wife. That is until the instructor recently asked me: “Leon, just how many wives do you have?”

Mis mujeres translates as my women, not my wives. Technically I should refer to “mi esposa”, but I hear “mi mujer” often.

Anyway, for the curious, the answer is one. I have only one wife.
