Marriage in ancient Greece

At Sparta, barrenness on the part of a wife seems to have been a ground for dismissal by the husband;[46] and from a passage in Dio Chrysostom,[47] it has been inferred that women were in the habit of imposing suppositious children with the object of keeping their husbands; but the word permits, if indeed it does not require, a different interpretation.
