Leads to our current thoughts on Divorce
In the Medieval time period man and women had different thoughts on how they were expected to behave and how to be with their spouse. Many men were unfaithful to their wifes because they beileved that they were allowed to. This thought may have been shared with the women but you do not see it as much with them. In Chaucer's tales many of the pilgrims told tales of Knights that had advantures and Kings that lead to them being unfaithful. This idea may not currently be shared in modern times but the acts still happen.
