In the covenant of marriage she is compelled to promise obedience to her husband, he becoming to all intents and purposes her master the law giving him power to deprive her of her liberty and to administer chastisement.
75. lappuse - The history of mankind is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations on the part of man toward woman, having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over her.
