Uxor is the Latin for wife, often abbreviated as ux., and often used in the form "et uxor" or "et ux." (literally "and wife") to indicate a couple comprising the identified man and his otherwise-unidentified wife. For example, many older property deeds list the owners in the form "John Smith et ux." In the present day, most jurisdictions would indicate both the husband and wife by name.
