I've read the history, and my answer is just: BARF...In Arizona, during the 1880s boom-town era, it was not uncommon for a man and wife to open a saloon together. The husband would run the bar while the wife serviced cowboys and miners upstairs. It happened a lot. Wyatt Earp was his common-law wife's pimp. Wyatt's oldest brother James ran a successful saloon and brothel in Tombstone and his wife was the madame who also entertained clients. It was a fairly common practice during the post-Civil War America, where social mores had lapsed in the face of massive reconstruction. Interesting how this behavior has come full circle in our society.
