Example text

A woman's right-or perhaps better put, a woman's needto many became the suit's primary social justification in a society that trumpeted marriage and motherhood as the most appropriate feminine vocations. "'~ At a time when observers like Tocqueville marveled at the freedom Matrimony 38 given courting couples, nuptial liberty led to the judicial conclusion that the more independent, worldly male incurred greater legal liabilities while the politically and economically circumscribed female's liability declined.

The will theory assumed that all parties bargained equally and that the state had a circumscribed role in private agreements. A will theory of marriage pacts came to the fore in post-Revolutionary America as well. 38 Religious jurisdiction, particularly the Roman Catholic belief in marriage as a sacrament, was the bete noire of those espousing the contractual foundation of matrimony. In 1816, Connecticut judge Tapping Reeve, a deist and ardent Federalist, used his volume on domestic relations to make clear the distinction between the two views: '"There is nothing in the nature of a marriage contract that is more sacred than that of other contracts, that requires the interposition of a person in holy orders, or that it should be solemnized in a church.

The legal rights of married women, especially when they acted as surrogates for their husbands, increased. The availabilityof divorce in some colonies and domestic interdependenceencouraged by colonial life in all of them also enhanced women's rights by increasing the presence of wives in the legal system and placing household and personal relations on a more contractual basis. The elimination of primogeniture and entail in several colonies and the existence of what may have been a higher concern for child welfare in the new settlements than in much of the Old World also elevated the status of coIonial sons and daughters.
