Description: Article on sexual contract and mariage blanc. Abstract: Reading Marie Jeanne Riccoboni's biography as exemplifying eighteenth-century marriage based on women's limited legal recourse within the marriage contract, I argue that the author offers women an empowering alternative to the sexual contract in her fiction, a mariage blanc based on friendship.
