Rules of a Regency Romance — 7 Comments

  1. All I can say to this is if my parents had to choose my spouse, I would have become a nun. *facepalm* Thankful THAT went out of style. I do understand the premise though. I often wonder how long it took to be cognizant of all of the do’s and don’t’s. My sarcasm would surely have gotten me in trouble…LOL

  2. I think my utter awe at finding your spouse this way and/or living in such rigid guidelines is one of the reasons I love reading Regency period fiction. Thank you for a very informative post.

  3. I love these posts regarding the Regency period. I find it rather amusing how Jane Austen has Darcy criticizing Jane Bennet regarding her reserve toward Bingley…

  4. Another good Amanda Vickery reference to the time period is, “The Gentleman’s Daughter:Woman’s Lives in Georgian England” (2003) Unfortunately the kindle version I have did not have the rights to all the illustrations, prints from the time period. I will have to get a hard copy.

    Thanks for a quick summing up!

  5. Thank you for all your research on this! Certainly explains a lot, and I imagine it was all so much more complicated in the city than in the smaller communities. Thanks again!
