A long term girlfriend/boyfriend, or your wife/husband. So called because they are very special to you and it is as though they complete you.
Me and my other half went on a night boat trip in Paris last weekend, it was lovely and romantic...

Get the other half mug.
Newest of new age garbage to grace western culture...a hip new way to simply say Girlfriend or Boyfriend. Other half is a term used by those whom destroy all of their own individuality and reinforce partner worship as if they would not be complete without them thus upon break up its impossible for them to survive alone.
Craig: Hey Dad this is my other half Susan!

Dad: Stop being a new age faggot and just say its your damn woman!

Other Half is what you call the person in your life that is so much like you and you spend a lot of time with.
Person 1: Why are you so distant?
Person 2: My Other Half isn't here
Person 1: I'm so Sorry:'(

Get the my other half mug.
A phrase used to describe the working conditions of the lower class, often involving tiresome labor, menial tasks, and/or generally bullshit jobs.
Example 1:
Friend: My parents want me to get a job or else they will kick me out of house, but it's totally stupid because they're rich and don't need any rent money.
You: Have you considered that maybe they just want you see how the other half lives, or maybe they think that 26 is way too fucking old to be mooching off senior citizens, you entitlement douche?
Friend: Hey fuck you man!

Example 2:
Friend: I thought going into the armed services as an officer would be way better than going in enlisted, but yesterday I spent the entire night standing guard over my platoon's weapons as they all slept.
You: It is possible that your superiors just want you to see how the other half lives.
Friend: Perhaps, but it still sucks ass.
