How to find out more about expert injury lawyers in Moorgate
Moorgate is an area in the city of London. Many people in London enjoy the joys of parenthood and if you are in the midst of family planning, you may have wondered why the Victorians had such large families, often ten or more, whilst the earlier Georgians did not. The average Georgian family was estimated at 2.5 children.
The most obvious question is how did the Georgians keep multiple pregnancies at bay when there was no reliable form of contraceptive? Women are at their most fertile in the years following menarche which would have been from the age of fifteen to twenty then. In that period, the usual age for the first marriage was twenty six so that would automatically lower the amount of pregnancies a woman would go through. This means that if a woman’s fertility was on the decline when she married, she would have fifteen to twenty years to conceive before the menopause. Living in London at that time would have meant many fevers and infections, this would be enough to halt fertility and at the very least dampen libido.
Keep your hands to yourself
If we add to all this that marital relations were frowned upon at certain times of the year, we start to understand why pregnancies were few and far between. In 1750, the Woman’s Almanac offered a guideline as to when you could actually do it. Apparently from January 13th it was perfectly reasonable to perform your marriage duties but only until February 11th. As Lent arrived, love left and until April 23rd you had to keep your hands and everything else to yourself. By April 23rd, you probably would have had a spring in your step; however, there was no point in getting too carried away as this only lasted until May 19th. From then on until June 10th, everything was off the menu but after that, the relationship calendar looked up because you could be a love machine for the rest of the year.
