"To begin with, we find the words for “husband” and for “wife,” which we will consider in their Latin expressions, marītus and uxor.

"Marītus is peculiar to Latin: as a matter of fact, there is no Indo-European word signifying “husband.” Sometimes the expression “master” was used, e.g. Skt. pati, Greek pósis (πόσις), without any special indication of the tie of conjugality; sometimes we find “the man,” Lat. vir, Gr. anḗr (ἀνήρ), whereas marītus designated the husband in his legal aspect." ~ E. Benveniste, Indo-European Language and Society (1973)
