Emilia: Let husbands know
Their wives have sense like them; they see, and smell
And have their palates both for sweet and sour,
As husbands have. What is it that they do
When they change us for others? Is it sport?
I think it is. And doth affection breed it?
I think it doth. And have not we affections,
Desires for sport, as men have?
Then let them use us well; else let them know
The ills we do, their ills instruct us so.

— William Shakespeare
