SWMBO stands for "she who must be obeyed." People (particularly men in unhealthy relationships) may use this flippant acronym to refer to their wives.
The term She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed originated in the novel She: A History of Adventure, which was written by Sir H. Rider Haggard. In the novel, two adventurers search for a terrible, supernatural queen named Ayesha, who is sometimes referred to by the nickname She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed.
