office wife
 n.— «The real “office wife” is not a sweetheart; she’s exclusively a helpmate—a girl or a woman who does everything but breathe for a man with whom her relations are apt to be so impersonal as to be almost inhuman.» —“The Case For The ‘Office Wife’” by Lawrence Gould Port Arthur News (Texas) Sept. 1, 1940.
