] Are you going to drag Amanda Root into this? That's the only really public kiss I can think of. Personally, I cheered!And she had accepted him, then, hadn't she?
Notice how they cleverly had a huge circus parade go by at that moment to provide a distraction so that no-one would notice Anne & Captain Wentworth kissing. I love the pause before they realize no-one's paying attention to them and then they kiss!
] As for ladies and gentlemen not kisssing until they are at least engaged,I think human nature doesn't change greatly from generation to generation, do you?My seven year old thinks kissing spreads germs, but it doesn't stop him indulging.....
Hmm... but how much of kissing (and all it implies to us) is a cultural rather than a biological part of human nature? (BTW, as every seven year old knows kissing spreads cooties as well as germs! YUK >:P )
