Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
After the failure of her brewery and her pathetically flat beers, Margery decided that she needed to focus on her crazy-ass visions 110%. To this end, she started telling her husband to bugger off. Now, in the past, Margery had given birth, to like, fifty-seven children, so her husband was clearly used to getting laid. Getting cut off from his nookie didn't make him too happy. However, since Margery was such close personal friends with Jesus, she asked Him to sort the matter out. The solution was thus: Mr. Kempe will leave Margery alone in bed as long as she pays off his debts and promises to hang out with him on Fridays. Note that I'm pretty sure that solution still doesn't get the husband any action, so I'm not sure why he agreed to it.
I get the feeling that "eating and drinking on Fridays at his bidding" is going to involve a lot of him jerking off while she watches. And eats and drinks.
