Introduction The idea that women were property of men in marriage and had to obey them was the accepted belief up until not too long ago. It is the belief of a lot of men
Interests The traditional marriage ceremony required women to promise to obey their husbands. Even now, a number of people use this format at weddings. In some relationships, a master slave relationship is quite blatant in so far as what women in relationships of this type are expected to do for the men. Of course it would never be seen in those terms, but what happens in the relationship, amounts to slavery on the part of the women. When we look at the broad range of common relationship problems that many women in relationships experience, there are many aspects that come under this heading. There are the extreme situations of women in abusive relationships being treated brutally in a whole range of ways, including sexual abuse. Is this any different from a master slave relationship where the slave owner could treat their slaves any way they wanted to? Recently I heard a woman, who had been in a violent marriage for many years, say she was required to call her husband master! As a counselor I was dumbfounded at the number of incredible stories I was hearing from a whole range of women. They lived in fear, never knowing what might happen next, walking on egg shells all the time, prisoners in their own homes. Rape in marriages and relationships is rampant. Sometimes it is blatant, often it is more subtle, and not thought of as rape. There are many women who feel obliged to 'come across', afraid of what might happen to them if they don't. Most would not consider as rape.
