"My Woman, My Woman, My Wife" is a song written and recorded by American country artist Marty Robbins. It was released in January 1970 as the first single and title track from the album My Woman, My Woman, My Wife. The song was Robbins' 14th number one on the country chart. The single spent a single week at number one and spent a total of 15 weeks on the country charts.[1] The song won the Grammy Award for Best Country Song in 1971.

The themes of the song revolve around the singer's testimonials regarding the fortitude of his wife in living a hardscrabble existence, which sound bad enough. Then two-thirds of the way in the suffering suddenly jumps to an unimaginable level.
