As a matter of fact, it did happen and some still consider this thought, the ownership of a lady by the man of the house, to be a righteous one, howsoever egregious it might sound. There are various instances of this practice throughout Eurasian cultural history.
The origin of the term husband being might be in or around Saxony, but any comparison on the efficiency, it seems futile.
@loveissweeterHi! New here and this post is what I saw first. Same as you, I'm into business. This kind of situation happens a lot to us. I'm not married yet tho but I have my mom who always nags at me when this matter comes up. But she understands actually and I know that your family will do so too. So just explain everything to them and bring some treats. ;)
