Seems to me more like editorial commentary than linguistic science

Over at the helpful Wiktionary, the entry for the Spanish term esposa (wife) lists precisely one "related" term: responder, which is Spanish for "answer."

What are you trying to say there, chicos?

Hey Kenny,

This is from una maestra de espanol (sin tilde). The related term should be "handcuffs" because slang (actually, more common than even slang) for handcuffs in conversational Spanish is "esposas."

See for example: La Casa de Calle Mango by Sandra Cisneros (a good book to read to improve your Spanish - check Borders).

-La esposa de Esteban
