I know that for direct blood family members, in italian, you can say mio zio, mia nonna instead of il mio zio and la mia nonna.
I'm curious, because my book doesn't cover it and my teacher hasn't answered me, does this exception follow for husband and wife? Can I say mio marito or tua moglie or do I need the definite article?
