in consequence of the missive, the rain that caused Jane's sickness is due to chance, penned by mikeB in Japan
Quite a central theme in many of her books.
The trouble is, that a woman had to make a decision that would last for the rest of her life, based on the given information at that moment, and based on the priorities she had in life at that moment.
In our day happiness in marriage is surely also chance to a certain degree, as is everything in life. The difference is, that we have much more freedom to decide what we want to do with our lives than in JA's time.
I would so like to know what the average women felt on the subject during JA's times.
