When answering this question, it occurred to me that I don't know what to call a "boyfriend" or a "girlfriend" in Latin. What would be good words?
I assume that the same solution will work for both with obvious modifications, but I will be happy to be proven wrong as always. There might not be a perfect fit but several options for different uses. Therefore I request that if you suggest a translation or several, please also describe what good and bad aspects it has as a translation. That way anyone stumbling on this question can find the answer that fits their particular case best.
Notice that I'm not looking for a name to call a loved one (as in "veni huc, mel meum!"), but a word for the status. I'm looking for something that would work in "do you have a boyfriend?" and "here's my girlfriend" and similar. These refer to somewhat informal romantic relationships, so engagement and marriage should be kept out of the vocabulary here.
