Harmony before Matrimony an October 25th 1805 caricature by James Gillray depicting a musical courtship. The woman plays a harp, and the man and woman sing together from “Duets de l’Amour”. On the table, a book is open to Ovid (who would not have been considered suitable as reading-matter for girls or unmarried women in 1805). The hanging floral wall decorations include torches of Hymen (the ancient Roman god of weddings) on the left, and the bow and quiver of arrows of Cupid on the right. An oval-wall painting shows Cupid having dropped his bow and arrows, and shooting at a pair of cooing doves with a blunderbuss! At the left are two goldfish in a bowl, above a heart-shaped imitation-antique vase with a female sphinx decoration. Two cats do not appear to be influenced by the musical harmony, and are quarreling on top of music scores left on the floor.

A companion Gillray caricature “Matrimonial Harmonics” was published the same day, depicting the sorry state of a husband and wife (several years after marriage) who never had much in common except music (which the husband is now much less interested in than is the wife, while the wife is more interested in music than in her duties as a wife and mother). This pair of caricatures satirizes the system by which middle- and upper-class girls were taught music, drawing, and French in order to attract a husband — an education which didn’t necessarily help them to make the best of living in marriage.
