While Mr. Mallard enjoyed sexual relationship with his wife when he was alive, Mrs. Mallard essentially considered that slavery of body towards her husband. In a conservative society, this may be considered as emotional dishonesty of Mrs. Mallard in the marital relationship. This negates the notion of intrinsic desire of women to be sexually significant to their husbands.

...Women in Society Introduction Women have a long and storied history in human civilization. In some societies, they rule with an iron fist and make many of the decisions, while in others they are considered to be subservient to the male. It seems that few societies have treated females as equals in comparison to their male counterparts. Yet, in a modern and civilized society, equally they should be treated. One way to determine how women are being treated in our society today is to examine their roles. We want to look at issues such as domestic violence, negative and positive expectations thrust upon women, and whether or not males demonstrate superiority over women. We... ?

However, understanding some of the elements of society as they existed in the past reveal this may not be the case.

...Women and Society In Making a Home, Making a Living, I believe that women are the disadvantaged ones, since they struggle to work both at home and in their workplaces (Kirk & Okazawa-Rey 307-320).These dual responsibilities continually make women suffer yet their male counterparts still enjoy privileges like controlling the households. The part on Why Privilege Marriage?, begs the question on the contributions of marriage promotion movements in the marriage institution.

Monrad believes in the duality between men and women and only men are shaped after God’s image (Langas 148).
