    Один из моих сотрудников—украинец. После, как я ему сообщаю о том, что мы с подругой делали в уикэнд, он пи**дит, говоря “ты ще, подкаблучник?" Он, кажется, думает, что я вижу мир из-под шпилек подруги. Увы! Все равно, интересное слово.

    Подкаблучник = Человек, который поклоняется подруге или жене

    У англоговорящих нет точного эквивалента. Мы обычно говорим "He's pussy-whipped" (считается вполне сермяжным) или же "She's a real dominatrix" (у этого оттенок сексуальности).

    (исправьте мои ошибки!)

    Oxygent, добро пожаловать к нам!
    Спасибо

    "Поклоняться" means "to worship", so it's more suitable for gods or idols. More accurate meaning is "мужчина, который подчиняется женщине в их отношениях". I guess the English analogue is "wife-dominated".

    Thanks for the word Oxygent, I was wondering what the correct word would be ... I'm aware that Поклоняться is usually used in those contexts, but it was the only word I knew for something similar to "bow down to", which is something I'd say in English "A guy who bows down to his girlfriend or wife."

    I'm not sure hen-pecked has quite the same meaning. It's the first time I've heard the word, but having seen it in context a few times now, it means more specifically a guy who is submissive to his wife on account of her nagging. It seems "pussy-whipped" or "podkabluchnik" imply a kind of spontaneous, unconditional submission.

    Actually "подкаблучник" may be called any man, who is submissive to hif wife/girlfriend, sometimes this word can be used ironically when a man lets a woman make a decision.
