He is obliged by his wife.
Wherefore? Because without her, he should die.
He should die? Because his days are numbered. That means: unless he teach, a childless man has but the count of his life's days.
Why should she obligate him? For her honor.
Wherein lies that? With her children. Say rather, her family. And with God, who gave her graces.
Is she not below him? At night always, outside often, but she is before him when she speaks at table.
As she is jealous, a wise man insists not, but cedes every right. Every? All that are due.
