In La Perfecta Casada ( 1.583) Fray Luis de Leon exhorted wives to redeem their fallen husbands through their exemplary behavior. While he does not directly address the problem of spousal abuse, he does suggest that even infidelity must be endured as part of the perfect wife's duty to exert her good, Christian influence on her husband.
