Marriage In The 18th Century Chap 22-23

White males began courting in their teens similar to us now, and usually married in their early to mid twenties.

Women back then actually had domestic training, essentially being a stay at home mom 101

However this "courting" actually gave women a lot of the power and choice in their lives and future as they were able to reject or accept whomever they chose.

This was the time that romance and affection became the main reason for marriage and arranged marriages became all but extinct
