Hi,

I was puzzled as well. When in doubt I hit the net, in this case an online
dictionary:

One entry found for uxorial.

Main Entry: uxorial

Pronunciation: "&k-'sOr-E-&l, -'sor-; "&g-'zOr-, -'zor-
Function:
adjective
Etymology: Latin uxorius
Date: 1800
: of, relating to, or
characteristic of a wife

I guess 'uxorilocal household' means when two people
get married they move to where the bride lives.

Cheers,

Sarah Jasmijn
