Sparta families were thought to make the State weaker. The only reason people could get married is so that the boys had to go to the military. The boys have to be at age 7 to go to the military. The only way to get food is to steal it, but if you get caught, you get a really bad consequence.
Married couples could not be seen together, they could not eat together, and the woman could not be with their husband ever. Unwanted children in Sparta were either put outside to die or adopted by other families to be slaves.
Life in Sparta sounds bad to me. I wouldn’t like to live in Sparta. Probably you too. If I lived in Sparta, I would not like to be in the military.
