Lady Lucas began directly to calculate, with more interest than the matter had ever excited before, how many years longer Mr. Bennet was likely to live; (ch. 22)
Now, I know that Mrs. Bennet and Mrs. Lucas are not exactly bosom beaus, that there is a rivalry between them, but calculating how long Mr. Bennat has to live? Calling at Longbourn more often than usual to rub Mrs. Bennet's face in it? I don't know. That goes beyond rivalry, I think.
What do you think of Mrs. Bennet's and Mrs. Lucas's relationship? Just neighborhood grand dames trying to one-up each other? Or is there something darker beneath their interactions?
