Another theory:  The Pallisers, a 70s TV series based on the novels of Anthony Trollope.  A quick look at the Wikipedia entry makes me think that this could be the series she is thinking of.

This sounds like Upstairs Downstairs.

It was set at the beginning of the 20th century, and the woman was the wealthy one. But the hubby was an MP and they married over the objections of her parents. The last name (Bellamy) begins with "B" which sounds a lot like a P.

Revealing that I have any familiarity with such matters can only decimate my street cred....

I have a patron looking for a BBC series that ran sometime in the 1970s, although the series actually took place sometime in the 19th Century (it was fictional, not based on real life). She said it was about a guy from a wealthy family who wanted to marry for love but his family considered the girl beneath him and his family forced him to marry someone else. He became a member of parliament. She thinks the TV series ran for several seaons. She also thinks the guy's last name and/or the title of the series started with a "P". Does this sound familiar to anyone? Thanks for your help!
