I think this was probably The Pallisers, based on the series of novels by
Anthony Trollope, in which Plantagenet Palliser is bullied into marrying
Glencora, and they become quite devoted to one another (over the course of
many decades). There's tons of Victorian politics in it, about their family
and also Phineas Finn. It was great!
