Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 191. The idiom today is someone's
better half. Okay. Let's take a look at the note. Someone's better half is a
humorous way. Yeah. This is always meant as a joke or it's always meant usually in
fun when you say this. So someone's better half is the humorous way as
referring to one's spouse or romantic partner. It tends to be used more to mean
a wife or a girlfriend. Yeah when I hear it more often I usually hear it the
better half meaning that the wife of the girlfriend is actually the better half.
Rather than a husband or boyfriend, but it could be used for either one. You know
and it's always meant as a joke. I don't know, maybe men don't mind as much to say
that their wife is it better half. I don't know exactly why it is that way,
but generally I hear it much more often with the wife or the girlfriend is
really supposably the better half. Okay. Anyway though, let's uh oh
let's let's look at the examples here. Example number one. Hey Sam.
Where is your better half today ? Yeah. We often heard people say something like
that. You know, as a joke especially if they see the couple together a lot and
now maybe they just see the husband by himself they might say it like this. You
know, hey where's your better half ? where is she ? Hey, you know what's going on ? All
right. Let's take a look at example number two. Let me talk it over with my
better half before I make a decision. Yeah. You might hear someone say that. Use
it that way. Or number three. You should see you should see his better half. She's
a knockout. Meaning a knockout, meaning very , very
attractive , very , very beautiful. And this is again another way that you might hear
it used. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it is clear. Thank you for your time.
