Wow, my bad, my question was definitely ill-phrased!

I meant it to be:

How would you describe someone who hardly ever go out anymone, for instance since he got married and have had two children etc. ? Is there any specific verb or noun to depict such a person?

Incidentally you answer is interesting though!

He was asking about people who 'hradly ever' go out, so 'hermit' seemed to fit the bill. I didn't have you in mind. :lol:
