    Run away and Sanctorum will pick you up, send you back home, and allow the paternalistic dad figure to mete out whatever punishment or abuse he wishes.
    ...when runaway slaves were caught, returned to their masters and punished. This is also similar to some eastern cultures in which male members dominate and control their female relatives. Honor killings are a result. Also, in Saudi Arabia, women cannot leave their houses without a male relative escorting them. And they cannot leave the country without a male relative's permission. Imagine a mother having to get her son's permission to travel abroad.

    Mind boggling...
