Errors of Modern Courtship: 1881

Errors of Modern Courtship: 1881

I’ve noticed several Victorian-era newspaper articles that criticize or express worry over “modern” courtship (see links to the related articles, at the end of this post). It seems that every generation worries over its youth, their choices, their means of making connections and falling in love. What do you think of this idea, that the changes in courtship from generation to generation, worry the parents and grandparents?

What do you think? Are today’s viewpoints much different?
