The German word for woman or wife.Also a German courtesy title or form of address for an adult woman.

Frau Schmidt = Mrs. Schmidt

Frau would be woman and Ehefrau is the 'wife'

[Technically true, but in normal conversation husband and wife are referred to as "Mann und Frau." I would never, for example at a perfume shop, say that "Das Parfum ist für meine Ehefrau." This would imply that I have some other kind of Frau that I could be giving gifts to as well. When introducing yourself as a couple you would never say "Das ist meine Ehefrau."]
