I have two books that deal with this (and other related) subjects. They are The Family, Marriage and Sex in England 1500-1800 by Lawrence Stone and The Reshaping of Everyday Life by Jack Larkin. The first does extend into the 1800's eventhough its subtitle suggests otherwise.
Do either of these books shed any light on Leslie's original question, namely , whether there was a change in attitudes to morality during Jane Austen's lifetime? And if there was, does it correspond to a change in fashions?
