Women's service

In the older families, my mother always told me that the woman has to follow her husband, right? When he went to the field she would go along, but when she came home, she would make lunch and he would take the mate1. She said it was the wife's job [...] and she had to follow her husband on the field, which was her service. She had to be on her husband’s side.
