It's time for
me to go to school as well. I must live in the barracks. I don't know what to expect. I
know that I will be expected to learn wrestling, gymnastics and combat skills.
They want to make me
strong. Spartans believe that strong young women produce strong babies.
When I am 18, if I pass my skills and
fitness test, I will be given a husband and allowed to return home even though my
husband will not live with me.
