I'm quite aware of the suffix -hood forming nouns.
-hood - Denoting a condition or quality.
As we all are aware of, parenthood means the state of being a parent. And so sisterhood, childhood and brotherhood and the list goes on. Well, each definition either refers to being in that state, relationship between the similar group, or the responsibility involving a person in that -hood.
But then, is loverhood possible? The state of being in love, or relationship between lovers (as sisters in sisterhood) or being a responsible (?) lover (which sets me an example in loverhood -as it is possible in parenthood).
My homework: Urban Dictionary and Wikitionary mentions it. The former one emphasizes more on females, the latter one sounds okay but it's Wikitionary -you and I can edit it! Also, those are not the sources we generally consider as authentic as OED, M-W, Collins and McM, which all results nothing for that search word.
I also checked the list of words ending with -hood (puppyhood was surprising!) but there as well, I don't find loverhood.
If not, what's the term (and not a phrase).
