In The Watsons (e-text linked below), the family's in imminent danger of running out of money and sinking out of genteel society, and Emma Watson says: "I would rather be teacher at a school (and I can think of nothing worse) than marry a man I did not like."
Jane Fairfax, like Emma Watson, comes from a background of being raised and educated by a richer family than her own, but not being able to depend on that patronage indefinitely.
