[Pro] Husband/Wife political correctness?

Hello everyone. I have an interesting dilemma that is definitely Off Topic.

I’m designing an eight page form for a client. In years past, the form had four pages for to the husband’s information and four pages for the wife’s information. Each of these pages was preceded by the word Husband or Wife.

In todays age of political correctness, how should I be entitling these pages so I can account for all of the different types of relationships that exist?

You could use Significant Other. But I have to question whether the primary person will always be the Husband. If you can be friendly (in language), you could make these You and Your Significant Other, that way you don’t care whether it’s two guys, or two women, or a man and a woman, or a boy and his dog – doesn’t matter.

I just spoke with my client. Do you think there are any issues with using “Me” and “Spouse”?

That seems very clear to me, and it’s non-specific in a way I find very honest and liberating.
