in consequence of the missive, "unromantic statement" about marriage, penned by Stacey GC
But that's not women being romantic, it is because women depended on marriage as their main hope of a "career" and prosperity, so a woman was likely to think very quickly of whether a man was likely to propose or be a suitable husband. Charlotte and Mrs Bennet both think that a man has to be "caught" as quickly as possible. And as soon as Caro thinks tht Darcy might admire Eliz's looks, she's nervously thinking (because she herself wants to marry him) that he might move towards matrimony, and is (by her sneering)hoping to shake him out of any such resolution.
