I also commented on how this marriage could be compared with Mr and Mrs. Bennet as they were married but lived separate lives with Mr. Bennet in his library and Mrs. Bennet fussing over her daughters. ...read more.

    Bennet feels she has the right to "design" her daughters future, which I strongly believe she see's this as an opportunity to move up in society and have more of a status within the community.
