Mate Choice and Domestic Life in the Nineteenth Century Marriage Manual
Gordon, Michael; Berstein, M. Charles
Journal of Marriage and the Family, 32, 4, 665-673, Nov '70
A considerable amount of diversity was discovered in the views expressed in the 63 books reviewed. Religious, physical, and social considerations were the factors most heavily stressed with regard to mate choce; romantic love was not an important factor. Sex is discussed almost solely in terms of its procreative function, although some change is indicated as the century draws to a close. (Author)
