Mr. and Mrs. Elliot

"Mr. and Mrs. Elliot" is a short story written by Ernest Hemingway. The story was first published in 1924 in Ford Madox Ford's literary magazine Transatlantic Review in Paris and republished by Boni & Liveright in Hemingway's first American volume of short stories In Our Time in 1925.[1]

The story is about a 25-year-old Harvard student who follows a "clean" life. He marries a 40-year-old clean Southern woman and the two try very hard to have a baby. Eventually both become disenchanted with each other, and the wife's girlfriend moves in to live with her.[1]
