In Mas. Shabbos on daf 118b it says: Reb Yossi never called his wife "wife". He called her "my house". From this gemora I think it's the minhag not to call the wife by her name. אמר רבי יוסי: מימי לא קריתי לאשתי אשתי ולשורי שורי אלא לאשתי ביתי ולשורי שדי

No bleeding does not mean not a virgin unless we double checked she was not virgin even if she was never with a man but was hit with a stick (i.e. is missing her Hyman for a different reason. If she was hit ...

Suppose I want to borrow $100 from you. You're a busy person, so if I ask for a loan, you'll tell me it's too much trouble to go to a lawyer, fill out a loan document, etc. So here's what I do: I fill out the paperwork ahead of time, sign it, and then come and ask for a loan.
