Courtship/Marriage in the U.S. during Victorian Era

Do you know of any websites, textbooks, regular books, podcasts, magazine articles, movie clips, etc, having to do with the multitude of rules that couples during the Victorian era were subjected to? Have to be at least somewhat credible. More details inside.

I have to do a final paper in my American History class on a subject of my choice. I wanted to do something kind of... well, different, and really have no interest in writing a long paper on the Civil War.
It's been very tough finding good sources on the topic. The library was of no help, there was exactly ONE book on the topic and it's only 20 pages long. There is one great book on the subject, however, it's about 30-40 dollars through Amazon and I'd really hate to spend that much on a book I'll use once if I'm able to find other sources. I feel like maybe I'm looking in the wrong places, there also wasn't much else on Amazon about the subject.
I feel like there should be more out there-- and if there's not, what should my next steps for this paper be? I'm not sure I can choose another subject now.
