Men in Sparta

Men in Sparta lived mainly in barracks, even when married. They would only visit their wives in the home and then return to life in the barracks.

Men spent their time training for combat or at war. Being a successful Spartan Warrior was important to the family and the Spartan way of life.

This left the women to manage the farms and homes, hold the dominant role in daily life and be wealthy in their own right.
