What does 여보 literally mean?

I hear people call their husbands/wives/boyfriends/girlfriends by this word and I know it's like "honey", but I also hear it when people answer the phone and they go, "여보세요". I want to know what it literally means.

    "여보세요" literally just means "hello". It's not relevant with "여보" at all. Hope it helps : )

    literally 'you'
