SECRETS (1924):

75-year-old Mary Carlton is depressed over her husband John's illness. She feels her life would have no use if he dies. She starts reading her diary, after which the film jumps to 1865, when she fell in love with John. She feels she has to hide her love, because of her strict mother, fearing she will disapprove because of their social class differences. Mary lives within the very wealthy Marlowe family and grows up to be a lady with manners, while John is a working class employee.
