Realism fail - entire story based on false premise
Women of this era were not to seem seductive. Acting anything other than innocent would get her treated as and called a whore. And whores did not get married, they were hired. Compromised virtue meant not only sin but a risk of serious stds, plus no man would want to raise another's child, destroying his family's reputation. Bastards or babies of unknown or non-married descent were considered dangerous; as the thinking was all evils were geetic, what mght a strangers child bring. Nor would any man want to be known as the man whose wife was sleeping with the whole town and undermining his god-given masculine authority and sacred bond of mariage. Research more before attempting historical fiction again.
