The section of Ch 2 dealing with the five successful marriages and showing the differing levels of closeness and coping strategies was very interesing to me. The Gossips (what a name!) were very cute, but my favorite couple was the Ramsdens.
I love their bantering, their humor, their down-to-earthiness. Mr. Ramsden reminded me of Mr. Bennet and gives a glimpse of the kind of happy marriage he could have had, if he'd had someone better suited to his temperament than Mrs. Bennet, someone who could understand and enjoy his little digs and give back as good as she got. But there is an underlying affection there that is plain to see. I'm enjoying learning more about them in the next chapters...
