Men
In nineteenth century Paris, upper class men maintained control over the political system and the political process. Many were well educated at colleges and universities. Some of these men thought of their wives as critical but subservient resources who brought money, family, and social position into marriage. Some middle class men even purchased titles in order to join the aristocratic upper class. In spite of their professed puritanical morals, many upper class men visited prostitutes for sexual adventures or kept mistresses.
