wasn't married. He was almost certainly gay (like many Athenians

of his day), since he wrote about the idea that love between men is superior to love between a man and a woman. Many Athenian men had both wives and male lovers, but Plato had no wife.

You may be thinking of the wife of Socrates, who was Plato's great teacher. (In fact, the only reason Plato is known today is that he wrote down what Socrates said.) Xanthippe

was Socrates' wife. According to one source, she was "well-known as a shrew."
