The young wife of the old count never hid from her husband and her circle the obvious fact that she had walked down the aisle for mercenary motives solely. Her spouse understood that and didn’t even demand love from the young beauty — only fidelity. But her behaviour was beyond the pale, even by the standards of high society, which had never been famous for a special zeal in morality matters.

The basic, unspoken rule in social standards of decency said: “You are free to do whatever you want, and act as you like, when you are hidden from prying eyes behind the secure walls of your home castle; but outside of the high fence, only flowering gardens and luxurious fountains should be seen, even though Sodom and Gomorrah are concealing behind.”
