Husband - example

A woman was pregnant, then her baby was born and after a while she returned to work. All her workmates were surprised. "Who's looking after the baby? Have you left the baby to fend for itself? Are you just ignoring it?" they asked. The woman said, "No, No - my husband is at home looking after the baby. Everything is fine." "Oh, that's great! Good for you," they said.
