So for no reason I was thinking about these two a lot.
idk watching Troy and Hector and Andromache and blah blah blah you know
This morning I started poking around the internet on my ever persistent quest to find out what exactly Spartan women did all day (and was pleased to find that Spartan women actually did spend some time weaving, but not very much. It was still considered slave work). I stumbled across an article on young feminists who are interested in Spartans because they were also perceived to be feminist (although that is highly debatable!). The article described the “loveless” marriages and families of the Spartans, and it was an interesting perspective.
Anyway it led me to think about my personal headcanon of Sparta and Laconia being super mushy and lovey-dovey at home, so I’m going to continue trying to justify, refute, or modify their relationship.
