So for my current WIP, for one of the couples in the story, the husband is from England and the wife is American. They reside in Liverpool, England, circa early-1870s.

So here are my questions:

~The legality of a marriage like this and how it would have to be done to bridge the differences in native countries

~England's social views on having a marriage that involved a foreign spouse in this time period

~Typical attitudes towards married life from the perspective of each spouse, ie. gender roles, sex, and family as compared to the one spouse being British and the other being American

Any books or websites anyone recommends?
