  • Instead of the guys just saying wife they turn it into wifey making it sound cute, kind of like a pet name.

  • I think people just find it playful. Same with hubby. I think it's kind of cute when girls refer to their husbands as hubby. It's cheeky, playful, and it kind of implies they like each other if they are essentially using goofy names for each other.

  • It's not a new/recent term. It's been in lyrics since the 90s. It's just a slang way of talking.

    • It seems to have made a popular come back though :)

    • I just haven't noticed it that much, sorry. Personally I thought it was used a lot more back when I was in highschool but I guess I was just around more people he used slang more regularly back then.

      If you want an honest opinion, I think you can blame it on Drake, little Wayne, Young Thug, and similar artists. They're very popular now, and people (especially teens and young adult) typically pull out snippets from mainstream music and media and incorporate them into their day-to-day vernacular. They hear Wayne on a track say he'll make someone his wifey or Drake say a woman is "wifey material", and they copy it and use it because they see those people as cool, and by imitating them, they'll be cool as well.

      But that's just a guess.

    • I think you might have a very good guess there

  • As this is antonyms of word hubby. Female called their husband hubby so husband want to counter it so they made word called wifey.

  • Its like calling someone "wife material" like, if a girl were to do something like cook a fine ass meal someone would say "I wanna make her my wife!" cause it's traditionally known that wives make dinner ^_^ There are other examples but thats most common from what I've seen.
