The Swedish Discipline of 1632 on Women in the Camp

86. No Whore shall be suffered in the Leaguer; but if any will have his own wife with him, he may; if any unmarried woman bee found, hee that keeps her may have leave lawfully to marry her, or else be forced to put her away. 

-- The Swedish Discipline of 1632 (articles of war authorized by Gustavus Adolphus)
