Reply To: Emancipation – White Mansion


    I read a lot of historical romance novels and debutante is a word that is avidily used in historical books. Debutante means a young woman around the age of 17-19 that is about to make her debut into adulthood. A debutante is usually a virgin and starts the process of finding a husband at her come out party/debut. In the historical books that I read, this age is acceptable to start the courting process to find a husband but a debutante must remain a virgin until marriage.
