It is permissible for a Muslim man to marry a Christian/Jewish woman strictly under these two conditions: Why is marriage allowed in only one direction? Likewise you are permitted to marry chaste believing women [Muslims] or chaste women among the people who were given the Scripture [Jews and Christians] . It may be true that Muhammad at first respected Judaism and Christianity, but he turned against them later on in his life, as seen in this article and this one.
Maybe seventh-century Arab culture will answer this question. So this means that in seventh-century Arab culture a Muslim man may dominate his wife or wives, but not a Christian man who would dominate his Muslim wife.
Further, to be blunt, but also factual, Islam generally is a cruel and harsh slave-master.
This article shows that Muslim men are permitted to have sex with their slave-girls.
