  • A husband is a male in a marital relationship. The rights and obligations of the husband regarding his spouse, others, and his status in the community and in law, vary between cultures and have varied over time.
  • In monogamous cultures, a man is expected not to have more than one spouse (whether a wife or another husband) at the same time, and vice versa. This is enforced by legal codes which outlaw bigamy.
  • Traditionally, the husband was regarded as the head of the household, who was expected to be the sole provider or breadwinner, a role which is still maintained in some cultures, which are sometimes described as paternalistic.
