Jabour, Anya. Marriage in the Early Republic: Elizabeth and William Wirt and the Companionate Ideal. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1998.
Annotation / Notes: In the early American Republic the beau ideal was in vogue. It called for companionate marriage characterized by egalitarian, loving relations between husband and wife whose mutual happiness was foremost. Unfortunately, other ideologies prevented the reaalization of the beau ideal. Men pursued the cult of the self-made man, and women found value in the cult of domesticity (true womanhood) which stressed women's duties in the home and rebuked the male dominated public sphere. The Wirts wanted the beau ideal, but separate duties, often in separate locales, undermined their efforts.
