Sir Walter is of the opintion that "Elizabeth would, one day or other, marry suitably."(Ch 1) He is not concerned that it has not happened yet. While he has given up on any hope he ever had of seeing Anne's name in any other page of his favorite book, he is convinced it will happen in Elizabeth's case. He forgets her age, and considers her (and himself!) as blooming as ever.
Elizabeth, we are told, is handsomer now, at twenty-nine, than she was ten years before, and she knows it. (Ch 1) While her age gave her some regrets and some apprehensions (we are left to wonder how often she might contemplate these), Elizabeth still feels that she has time on her side -- one to two years anyway!
