saber5055 November 29, 2016 Share November 29, 2016 I have to agree with Scoobie and Dancer about Demelza, it's easy to judge her (and like her) based on present-day social standards and our own thoughts of how women should act. But back then, while I do not know it for a fact, I think most men, married or not, frequented "ladies of the night" and the wealthy all had courtesans. Wives were pretty much there to fed, cloth, clean, have kids and bed the husband ... when he wasn't bedding some other woman. Oh my, I do sound jaded, don't I! Link to comment
