They have a definite controversy, conflict between hard work, exhaustion and lack of joy on the one hand and being joyful and lustful on the other hand.
They can have an upbringing in a strict, orthodox religion where one has to obey the rules. Joy is forbidden and hard work a duty. Sex can only be done for procreation. They end up with obligatory sex with their husband and having a lot of children who make them exhausted. The feel caught, imprisoned in their boring life. For them life a valley of tears. They have lost their honour and happiness. They feel deluded about the beauty of life and discovering the opposite, the harshness and struggle.
The other side is their capacity to enjoy life, to accept flirtations, romance and sex with pleasure and joy, to seduce men without having to be obedient and promising anything.
