Anonymous said: The term "loose" women comes from the idea that they escaped, same terminology as "the cows got loose" for example. They escaped their owner. In fact, animal husbandry (owning and breeding captive animals) is where the term "husband" comes from, bride actually comes from "bird", as in "caged", "mr" comes from "master". Your cows, sheep, wife all got your name, so did your land, if you're ever wondering why very old, especially European, houses have names (and many cities have male's last names).
I had never heard this before. It’s interesting and it makes sense. Damn.
