in consequence of the missive, Precisely what's horrid about it, penned by Mary Anne
In fact, considering that "marriage had always been her plan," and that she is now in her late 20's, and I think we can assume that she has never refused a marriage proprosal, Charlotte may have already given quite a lot of thought to the kind of man she was willing to marry as her "greatest preservative from want."
Even Mr. Bennet "had been used to think [Charlotte] tolerably sensible." I can imagine that Charlotte was just as aware as Elizabeth was of the nature of Mr and Mrs Bennet's marriage, and that of her own parents. While these might not have been the pictures of domestic felicity, they certainly provided comfortable and safe homes for all involved. Charlotte was achieving no less.
