It was coined in January 2001, and it was initially a derogatory term to refer to the combined ships. An H/Hr shipper by the name of Ebony used the acronym on several posts on the Harry Potter for Grown Ups message boards, and said that "the condition known as the One Big Happy Weasley Family (OBHWF) syndrome... *that's* a disorder". However, H/G and R/Hr shippers quickly took over the term and used it for themselves.
In some cases, it also refers to stories where every member of the Weasley family is (almost always heterosexually) paired off, for example in these combinations: Arthur/Molly, Bill/Fleur, Charlie/Tonks, Percy/Penelope, Fred/Angelina, George/Alicia, Ron/Hermione, Ginny/Harry.
