HELP PLZ!How has the courtship ritual changed since the 17th century? what are your feelings about what it was like when compared to now?
Certainly I think the courtship ritual has changed greatly from the time of this great novel compared to now. Obviously today people are able to choose who they want to love and marry without the interference of their families and society in the same way. Another aspect you might want to think about is that Nat is only able to marry Kit when he shows that he is working hard and has his own prospects. Today, we mostly do not need to have our own job or business set up before getting married.
