Random Sequence: connubial

"That is true," cried Ben, rushing to the rescue just in time to save poor Simmons from an expressive connubial 'Ahem' -- "very true. I want no better proof of that than the modern game called SCANDAL. Do you play it?"
--Kormah Lynn, "A Few Friends", in Godey's Lady's Book and Magazine, October 1864

(I found a bound copy of several issues of Godey's in my basement and have been flipping through the dusty pages.)

connubial (adjective) = of or relating to marriage or a married couple's relationship

I've seen this word before, used only in the phrase "connubial bliss", but was never sure what it meant. I suppose there is also such a thing as "connubial misery" too.
