"You have no idea how misogynistic it is. It is literally horrifying what they tell women. Back when I was a witness my older sister got married to a guy when she was 18 (no pre-marital sex means ALOT of 18-20 year olds get married), turns out he was an abusive clod. For years and years this went on, they had 3 kids (three little girls, poor little things don't stand a chance), and the entire time he would slap her, hold her down, wrestle her. She would go to the Elders of the congregation. Their advice? He needs to work on being more christ like, and she needs to work on being more submissive. If she obeyed him more, he'd have fewer temptations to beat her...."It should be noted that divorce is a sin under their biblical law, and should she divorce him she would be ex-communicated and shunned for doing so."
