You may visit town, enhance your accomplishments, purchase luxurious gowns, or gamble with the girls, but make sure you keep your reputation in mind.

For the next few months, you have two goals: secure yourself a (preferably) handsome and (also preferably) wealthy husband, and elevate your family's social standing with your charm, wit, and talents.
