I know that "el marido" means "the husband" and that it can also be translated as "spouse," but I see no strong evidence that one would refer to a spouse of feminine biological gender as "una marida." Just because I don't see evidence of it doesn't mean that it couldn't be considered correct. Can anyone tell me if any of the following would sound strange to a native speaker of Spanish:
El nombre de su marida es María.
Ella es una marida y una madre.
Su madre es la marida de un soldado.
Or, is use of "marida" just not commonly used? What word do Spanish speakers typically use to refer to a person's wife and does it differ from region to region or whether or not a person is talking about his own wife versus wives in general?
