In formal circles the word girlfriend translates into unpaid prostitute. In many countries it is a violation of Moral Turpitude and with The USA the word can remove a woman;s visa status. The USA will only issue a fiancee visa for women if they say the word boyfriend.
The word girlfriend carries a nasty meaning for people who know.1
