Well, if I was a woman, I would like to be married to a farmer such as Robert Martin. It didn't seem like they had such a bad life. I am sure the work must have been hard, but Emma mantions that RM's fortunes were sure to rise. His wife probably had a lot to do what with supervising the house, children and the cows, especially the pretty little Welsh ones. ]
If I was a man I suppose I would be RM or a steward. In my research on my grad paper I learned that stewards who could read sometimes doubled as "doctors" for the local population because they could read the medical texrs.
