Analysing the correspondence of over 100 couples from the Scottish elites over the period 1650 to 1850, this study explores how ideas about the nature of emotional intimacy, love and friendship within marriage adapted to a modernizing economy and society and in turn shaped how power was negotiated between partners. The study shows that over the course of the 18th century, far from being on the European side-lines, Scottish ideas about gender and marriage were to become culturally dominant.
