Yeaaaa but not really. As the anon comment below shows (anon did something cool for once, who knew) Sparta was a militaristic state and made the majority of their income by raping and pillaging nearby land. Furthermore, Sparta was still an aristocracy and the whole idea that Sparta didn't care about their lineage was a load of crap, soldiers would bare the crest of their lineage on their shields when they went off to battle. While the top 10% of the most powerful families in Sparta lived like kings in a near utopia, the remaining 90% lived in squalor and were typically slaves, indentured servants and if you were lucky you were a merchant. Otherwise you were off to battle dying for your state. Isn't history fun?

Paternal lineage. As in the male side of the family was less important.

I haven't looked at all the comment, so I'm sure someone's mentioned this, but absolutely none of this had anything to do with respecting women. Sparta was a pure militaristic society. Marriage didn't mean much there anyway because the warriors were off training 11 months out of the year. They simply came in, screwed the woman to impregnate her that month, then left again. The woman wasn't concerned with cooking and cleaning, they had slaves for that. Her only job was to produce more warriors. Men often fell in love with other warriors and sex with women was simply a duty to the state. They'd often also get younger men in better shape to impregnate their wives in order to produce stronger children. They were only citizens because they had to run the state and the slaves when the men were at war. They couldn't keep their children either way. Boys left for agoge (military training) at 7 and Girls at 12. Finally, the little thing about the knives has no historical backing.

I always see a healthy marriage, as the man, the kind runs his family, but the woman, the queen has all the power, and uses her almost unspoken female influence to authorise and assist the man run the family.
Man cannot function without woman, woman cannot function without woman.
They are instinctively teammates, and if their relationship is worked on for years, they may eventually become soulmates.

Spartan women were so respected because they were the only ones who could give birth to spartan men

First of all.... Spartan women were not citizens, they were treated better than athenian women, but they were worse off than, say, puritan women in new england. in order to be a citizen in sparta you had to be a member of the hoplite class. AKA, a soldier.

Dont use wikipedia as a source, whoever wrote the "spartan women" wikipedia article is a ********. Read Herodotus.

If that was how nature intended it to be it would be called Human Selection rather than Natural Selection
