Meet Saint Uncumber.
She was born in the 14th century in Portugal. From an early age she desired to be celibate forever and stay close to God, but her father had other plans. He betrothed her to the king of Sicily. Uncumber prayed to God to deliver her from this marriage, and He responded by giving her a beard and mustache. Her fiance was so horrified that he broke off the engagement. Uncumber’s father was furious and had his daughter crucified, and so she became a virgin martyr and a saint.
Uncumber is the patron saint of women wishing to unencumber or disencumber themselves from abusive husbands. In Spain she is called Librada, which means “liberated.”

"You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for your own pleasure."
