"Today With Your Wife" is a song on Jonathan Coulton's eighth studio album, Artificial Heart.


"Today With Your Wife" was one of the songs to be debuted on July 22, 2010 at Coulton's first ever full band concert in Northampton, MA.


"Today With Your Wife" is available on the album Artificial Heart, which can be ordered through Coulton's website or on iTunes and Zune.

Fan Interpretations

A common interpretation of this song is that it's told from the point of view of the wife's new boyfriend on a rainy day out, after a divorce, with "your wife" being used ironically toward the ex-husband. This interpretation seems likely, as Artificial Heart features recurring themes of abandonment, breakups, and marriage. It may also be about a brother or similar figure meeting up with the wife character, a widow, and talking about her late husband.
