“Hopefully you remember us from Caroline Lee’s engagement party. I’m William Darcy and this is my… fiancée, Lizzie Bennet. We want to know if you’d be interested in planning a wedding in San Francisco.”
Maybe love isn’t blind. Maybe when you love someone you see their
faults, and it totally bothers you, and you will definitely encourage
them to change things and argue about it in the future. Maybe they
aren’t the smartest person you know, or the nicest, or the most
charming. But they are the best person you know and you love them just
the way they are.
Ah, of course! It is incomprehensible that a woman would ever refuse an offer of marriage. A man imagines a woman ready for anyone who asks her! …Well, let us, as you say, live in the “real world,” where men of course always reject a girl with a pretty face in favour of one with a well-informed mind…Men don’t like girls who argue! Harriet is just the sort of girl every man wants; she bewitches his senses, and satisfies him that he is always right.
