* ILoveYouBecauseICantControlYou: Apparently why Socrates married Xanthippe.

to:

* ILoveYouBecauseICantControlYou: Apparently why Socrates married Xanthippe. In Xenophon's writings, he explicitly compares his marriage to a man who rides unruly horses because if he can handle them, he can handle any horse; a man who can get along with her can get along with anyone.


Added DiffLines:

* MakeUpIsEvil: Make-up is mentioned twice in Xenophon's writings on him: once as something a personified Vice wears (in a legend of Heracles) and once as a fault for which a young wife must be set straight.
