"When women married, they depended on their husbands to make all decisions. While the women themselves were depended upon to carry out household chores. Married Egyptian women were expected by their husband’s families to bear children, but particularly males. It was common for married couples to continue to reproduce until bearing at least two sons. Barrenness was considered a severe misfortune for Egyptian women, as well as the inability to produce male offspring.
A family with well-grown sons were considered to have decent security. An Egyptian woman was thought to be at the peak of power when her sons had married because she automatically acquired the control over the newly growing families of her sons." Wikipedia.
