Reading some the comments we should be more clear on why the change needs to be made. "Spouse" is a gender neutral term that can mean either husband OR wife (not husband and wife). It exists, and has existed in corporate personnel paperwork for decades. This arena is of course not influenced by the religious construct of marriage and hence made the change when societal norms changed. For those who think that "We" get to decide whether or not we live in a Theocracy or a Democracy, you are ill-informed at the very least. The tenets of our Democracy and the foundation of our Constitution are and will be secular not religious. The founders of our country were explicit on this issue, no official religion and no religious test shall be made in order to hold PUBLIC office.
