If you are a man of holiness, you must look more for a portion of grace in a wife than for a portion of gold with a wife. You must look more after righteousness than riches, more after piety than money, more after what inheritance she has in heaven than what possessions she has on earth, more at what interest she has in Christ than at what interest she has in creatures, more at her being new-born than at her being high-born, more at her being good than at all her worldly goods.
Clement on the Role of Wives

And if he does not yield, then she will endeavor, as far as possible for human nature, to lead a sinless life.
