In the early 1800s, wealthy women had certain responsibilities. What was considered a responsibility?
entertaining other people of their stature, doing whatever their husbands said, several others...
The way you worded the answer bothers me... (1800s) Society defines women to be the caretaker of the house and children. They were believed to respect their husband, but they were never set as to do anything their husband says. There was a limit.
lol....my answer wasn't entirely serious.
