  • 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.

  • Bye-bye.
