Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
This woman in Gerrard Street here had been married very young, over the broomstick (as we say), to a tramping man, and was a perfect fury in point of jelousy.
jump the broom-stick = marry over the broom-stick = live together out of wedlock
Thanks for your efforts.
