Assuming that there are no laws or restrictions against it (since Lordaeron is so pro-HAVE BABIES), would Ermentrud ever marry another woman?
Assuming she hadn’t vowed not to marry, no. Ermentrud believes that the idea of gay marriage is ludicrous and that homosexuality is sinful
I thought you said she was a lesbian.
i did say that, and it’s true
Wouldn’t be the first religious zealot that’s a complete hypocrite about the issue. :)
But she’s the one that creates the law about homosexuality as far as I can see it.
Ermentrud believes that sex should only be had for procreation and that procreation is highly necessary.
Being full of lust and related desires is bad, that is what she was taught, and over the years she’s come to believe that any sort of desire is bad for not only the self but everyone.
Homosexuality in her mind is the worst indulgence of that sinful nature. Homosexual sex results in no procreation and homosexual marriage eliminates the possibility entirely unless you’re going to sin even more.
This on top of the fact that she’s always been taught about courtly love and chivalrous men and all that. She was raised in that kind of environment, and even though she doesn’t believe that sort of thing would ever happen to her she’s still in love with the concept. She thinks that’s what love is.
But she feels no sexual desire for men but does feel it for women, so she hates that part of herself because for one she believes it’s the devils temptation and for two in her eyes she’s too damaged to even experience love if she could so she hates that part of herself.
And she projects that hate onto homosexuality as a whole
