1.) Used to describe a servile, compliant, submissive, spineless wife who happily does her husband's bidding and serves his every whim dutifully.

2.) Can also be used to describe a wife who is cookie-cutter & bland in appearance and behavior. Subscribes to a popular look and dares not deviate from that look.

This term is borrowed from the fictional suburb of Stepford, Connecticut in Ira Levin's 1972 novel, The Stepford Wives, later made into movies (in 1975 and 2004). In the story, men of this seemingly ideal town have replaced their wives with attractive robotic dolls devoid of emotion or thought.
1.) She's such a stepford wife, I've seen her greet her husband at the door after work with a beer and a kiss 4 days in a row!

2.) I just got back from the pta meeting, I've never seen so many stepford wives.

2b.) The SNL skit "Mom Jeans" features women dressed to earn the SW distinction.

Jan 18 Word of the Day
1. Blue Monday is the most depressing day of the year, calculated by Dr. Cliff Arnall, a researcher at the University of Cardiff's Center for Lifelong Learning.
Factors used to calculate the date included weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year's resolutions, low motivation and feeling the need to take action.

In 2005 the date was calculated as January 24th, in 2006 it was January 23rd, and in 2007 it was January 22nd.

2. A song by the hard rock band Orgy from their album Candy Ass.
1. Guy: "Aw man, I feel like absolute shit today."
Friend: "Yeah, same here. I hate Blue Monday."

2. "I wish I could sing Blue Monday to my ex-girlfriend, she's such a bitch."

Doing a girl who has OCD from behind and positioning her in front of something disorganized, i.e. unfolded laundry, unwashed dishes, unfiled taxes. May take a while...but she just can't stop herself.

A real win-win for a single guy.
"So, she just started organizing your closet while you were inside her?"
"Yep, she's a real Stepford Wife."

An obedient unquestioning individual of either gender, usually in a high-ranking position at a multinational office (e.g. politics). Based on the 1972 novel of the identical title, this use of the term moves beyond the "cult of domesticity" and expands as far as the public / political arena.
In this government, a strong independent representative is very much frowned upon, but a Stepford wife lasts for the entire term.
