Many times, John restricted his wife on the physical movements she could complete. As her doctor, he insisted she not strain herself with unneeded tasks. She was no longer allowed to preform her passion of writing, take walks in the garden, or be with her newborn son for too long. Activities that gave her joy were no longer acceptable to John's standards.

Because Medea feels that she, as a woman in a deeply patriarchal Greek society, has virtually no power to prevent the wrongs done unto her, Medea asserts that the domestic life of a wife is far more destructive and dangerous than a life of war....   [tags: Marriage, Woman, Wife, Husband]
