See also "Dependopotomus." An Overly Sensitive Military Wife (OSMW) are just that: Overly Sensitive Military Wives. Typically, before their marriage to a service member, they have spent months scoping the pool for potential candidates. When she finds one fit for breeding, the OSMW pounces. Once married, she devours the military life. She will tell you how terrible and lonely it is being married to a service member, get a tattoo in his honor, be jobless, and enjoy the daily Hostess fatty cakes while sitting at home on Facebook.
Not to be confused with a Dependopotomus, although remarkably similar and typically concurrent-- they are, in fact, two seperate classifications. The OSMW may have, at some point or another in her marriage, had a job.
An OSMW can make drama over anything. ANYTHING. Go ahead and ask her about her endeavours as a small business owner ranging from Avon Representative, Mary Kay Independent Consultant, Passion Parties, Scentsy, or making of "brag bags."
Did you see that Overly Sensitive Military Wife punch out the 4 year old kid at the commissary for the last box of Twinkies? She moves like a Dependopotomus!
