ANSWER #1 of 28

i dont think there is a difference really? the only differences i can think of is paper status with the goverment or which ever and i think there is also an emotion difference moslty with the women, being a "wife" wearing that "ring" and having your spouse say "this is my wife..." not "this is my girlfriend" or in such cases friend. Having that commitment from your spouse.

ANSWER #2 of 28

I'm not sure if that was a typo or not...but my "wifey" is actually my friend. I generally hear other girls referring to their closest friends as "wifeys". And then a girlfriend is a girl that someone is dating, more an official title that a cute nickname.

ANSWER #5 of 28

There really isn't too much of a difference but in just a girlfriend/boyfriend relationship if the guy cheats on her then there's really no bead to divorce in such way but if he cheats on her and he's a married man, his wife can get him to pay alimony, which in a lot of divorce cases that's what ends up happening. Whereas relationship, I don't think that girlfriend and wife is top different from eachother. The marriage ring just signafies that they're committed to each other and they promise not to leave each other. One of the traditional marriage vows is "Until death we shall part." of course there's divorce but there has to be a reason behind divide. Whereas in a bf/gf relationship, they haven't yet sworn to the vows that they will remain together forever.

Whats the difference
ANSWER #6 of 28

For most people there is a difference.

When people marry their expectations change. The husband might expect his wife to do most of the cooking and cleaning and resent her asking for help after he worked all day. The wife might expect her husband to sell the sports car he loves because it is no longer practical. One partner might expect to have more sex while the other might expect things to cool down. The biggest problem is our society's "happily ever after" view that once we are married that our lives will be quiet bliss but when it inevitably fails to live up expectations we feel disappointed or cheated.

I know a lot of couples who lived together happily for years but once married split up shortly. Marriage caused them to have unrealistic expectations.

ANSWER #16 of 28

In slang terms, it pretty much means the same thing. To me (I'm old, like 28 lol), it's a newer slang word and seems to have taken the place of "boo", in terms of popularity and the times/fads. "Wifey" is just a sweet term of endearment a boyfriend might call his girlfriend, but I don't think being called "Wifey" means someone's boyfriend loves them more or is a "higher status" than girlfriend.

ANSWER #26 of 28

Where I live we don't say "wifey", we say "the missus". Being the girlfriend is different to being the missus. The girlfriend is the woman the man is going out with. And the missus is the wife or the mother of is children. Example: when my Dad introduced my Mum to his boss or one of his mates he'd say "this is the missus, Charmian." Hope I helped :)
