Peace be upon you,
There are many hadiths which order women not to refuse sex with their husbands. Some of which I know:
1) Prophet Muhammad has siad: "When a man calls his wife for sexual intimacy, then she should come, even if she is (busy) in the cooking area.” (Sunan al-Tirmizi & Sunan al-Nasa’i)
2) The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings ...
I can not give any proper hadith right now, but I know plenty of story of the companions of Muhammad (SM) who were very poor and did not have food to eat, did not have clothes to wear but they were told to perform their salat. Nobody is free from their salat, whatever is their conditions are.

The short answer is: We're equal in some senses, but also different in many.
لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity.
Meaning each soul has a certain capacity.

@John Bob. The problem is the worldly view that we have that 'death is a bad thing if it happens too early or to good people'. My friend, Death is only the beginning for everlasting life in the hereafter for everyone.

All praise be to Allah.
“Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allaah has
