* NoAccountingForTaste: Iago and Emilia have a very unhappy marriage with him frequently making misogynistic jokes in her presence. One of the early results of her bad treatment is that Emilia puts forward some, for the time, very surprising ideas about whether a woman could ever be justified in cheating on her husband.

Emilia feels far more loyalty and affection towards Desdemona than her husbands (which in the end leads to Iago's downfall).
