Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sure, that was the story, and it might even have been true in a proportion of cases. In others, not so much: there were plenty of women forced into convents by their families for a variety of reasons.

Anyway, sacrificing yourself for a delusion doesn't seem very noble to me.   A bit pathetic really.
