A Latin phrase meaning "and the wife." It is used in legal documents to identify a man's wife as party to a proceeding even though she is otherwise unmentioned. This is most common in property and marital cases. It is often abbreviated "et ux." The equivalent when a woman's husband is mentioned but not named is "et vir."
