3 Replies to “Regency Era Wife Selling”

  1. I wonder if the marriage would be…canceled? Illegitimate? Annulled? Like what happens to the marriage license and all that stuff if they had one? Would it be declared as a divorce? Would the husband be able to remarry if he sold his wife? So the wife would basically be a slave to the New owner? So many questions.

I would love to hear your thoughts!
