Aubri, I like the point you made about the husband and wife wanting to remain together in the afterlife. This is definitely unique, considering in Egyptian culture the married couples were separated (valley of the kings, valley of the queens). You also pointed out how the change in status of women possibly played a positive role in the society function, we know that Greek and Latin cultures considered such displays of affection and equal status as offensive, I wonder why the culture here was so different in their views on women. Any theories?
