When Ernest Hemingway would come home from school or from fishing with his father, his mother would make him change into a dress, but back then he was too young to know something was wrong about it. His mother took the culture from the Britain’s, because she thought that it was more sophisticated, and that it would teach discipline. After Ernest Hemingway grew up, he stayed with the hatred he had towards his mother for making him wear a dress. So after he became a writer, he would write about strong men, and women never really had an important role in his books and stories.

Ernest Hemingway got married three times because he says that he really fell in love with them, and he wished he would’ve been able to stay with all three of them, but his other wives didn’t want to.
