trailing spouse
 n.— «The other partner would be taken care of by the corporation with job opportunities as provided by policy with respect to “trailing spouse/SO.” Can the other partner truly “give up their current career”? Are they expect to for the sake of the marriage, or for the sake of their SOs career?» —“Equality Thoughts” by Robert P. McIntyre Usenet: soc.singles Mar. 4, 1992.
