1. Her pastor asked her to stay in the marriage.

That's typical. Clergy often don't help abused wives---they blame them and tell them they're responsible for keeping the marriage together. Stay with a violent man, don't complain, and pray.

4. And it was her husband who was infertile, not her.

And it turns out his problem could have been medically corrected.

Yet it is the woman who suffers because of everyone's ignorance. I guess that is the very definition of sexism.
