Document Summary

Demosthenes, against neaira: we take a prostitute for our pleasure, a concubine for daily attention to our physical wants, a wife to give us legitimate children and a respected house . For wife, any sexual relations with a man other than her husband was adultery. For a husband, sexual relations with prostitutes and concubines were admitted. However, the male adulterer - a man who had a sexual relation with a respectable. Athenian who was not his wife - could face serious charges and even be killed if caught in the act. Rape and adultery were not very clearly distinguished by the athenian law. Husband does not grab her by hand but by her wrist, this represents the strong patriarchal role in athenian society. Lax and soothing, but rly its like a sacri ce lol wtf. If possible, free women were not supposed to leave the house other than for religious festivals, funerals and other events.
