look up any word, like pussy:
 
1.
In a marriage or domestic partnership, the partner who does not work and stays home to take care of the house and the children, if any. Basically housewife, or househusband but without being gender specific.

Useful when speaking in general, or when talking to a couple and you don't who stays home.
It doesn't matter who stays home, the housespouse should have dinner waiting on the table for the working spouse.

2.
Basically is the same thing as a house wife or stay-at-home-mom, but not gender specific. It is the person in a married couple who stays at home while the other works, cleans, cooks, and looks after children. Also, it rhymes. How cool is that?
I just hope I end up being the house spouse.

5.
The male counterpart to the "housewife". Nowadays, in an individualistic, gay world of singles, the common English language is screaming for such a term.
"I am a good housespouse, not a desperate one, who makes his work right."
