When I couldn’t stop watching Downton Abbey I made this some ecard. I love Downton Abbey so much, but the consequences for women’s actions back then seemed so radical to me. Every lady I know would be a ruined whore, by how society declared it back then. At least today a lady can be a whore for some time grow out of it and then be a devoted wife in a loving relationship. There’s something sweet and touching about the women on the show saving everything for marriage, but then there’s also something unrealistic and naeve about it. I just feel like if you save feeling everything for one person how will you know without a doubt what makes them the right person? Of course, you’ll feel it, but having not much else to compare it to you might not realize how truly spectacular some things that person does are or on the other hand, you might not realize how much better you could be treated.
