Are Christian Wives Lower Than Slave Wives from Moses’ Time?

This is interesting food for thought for those who disallow any grounds for divorce or who would only allow adultery as a ground:

People028A slave under Moses was set free if the master violently abused her. A purchased slave wife was set free if the husband diminished her food, clothing or marriage rights. Do you really believe that a woman who is beaten, abused, neglected and hated must remain in bondage to the seed of the devil, when she would have been freed under the Mosaic Law? God forbid!
