175. That the wife cannot enter into the offices proper to the man, nor, on the other hand, the man into the offices proper to the wife, is because they differ as do wisdom and the love thereof, or thought and its affection, or the intellect and its will. In the offices proper to men, understanding, thought, and wisdom play the leading part, but in the offices proper to wives, the leading part is...

478. ADULTERIES AND THEIR KINDS AND DEGREES No one can know that there is any evil in adultery if he judges of it merely from external appearances, for in these it is like marriage.
