Abstract

The family in the first half of the nineteenth century was the microsocial environment through which the individual realized the connection with the macrosocial environment – then society and the state. Family relations of traditional society were based on the following principles: herarchy, the dependence of the functions, rights and duties of members on gender and age. Highly valued among the nobility was early marriage of daughters. Women's memoirs show that marrying for the sake of family interests was commonplace. Besides controlling the household and children, a married noblewoman spent time sewing and embroidering, and doing visits. The ideas of the enlightenment and romanticism influenced humanization of relations in the noble families. Some girls were not content with the usual fate of an advantageous marriage, purely female concerns and interests. The ideals of the "common good" and personal responsibility for one's own life prompted generations of women in the period of modernization reforms in the Russian Empire to declare the intention of self-improvement.
