अभिज्ञान शाकुन्तल - सती

सतीमपि ज्ञातिकुलैकसंश्रयां
   जनोऽन्यथा भर्तृमतीं विशंकते ।
अतः समीपे परिणेतुरिष्यते
   प्रियाप्रिया वा प्रमदा स्वबंदुभिः ॥

- अभिज्ञान शाकुन्तल

Even a devoted wife is looked up by suspicion by other people (relatives) if she is not living with her husband (and living with her parents). So, a wife must live with her husband irrespective of whether he likes her or not.
