I was flabbergasted, dumbfounded, gobsmacked, and rather surprised myself.

The Amish have subtle differences between wives and daughters as well.
Partly that daughters don't have a husband to be in submission to,
partly to advertise that one is available for courting.

who find themselves in adultery the answer is not to begin an affair
with another woman until I become humble again.
Sorry to be blunt, but this is such a bad idea I can't really help it.
