in consequence of the missive, Lizzy's Values, penned by Penelope
In his epilogue to "Pygmalion" (the play "My Fair Lady" was based on), George Bernard Shaw said something along the lines of: "A pretty woman of twenty has a very different attitude towards marriage than a plain one of twenty-nine." I like to think that Elizabeth would always refuse to marry purely for security (just as JA herself did) but if she found herself still single at twenty-seven, I think she would be a lot more sympathetic towards Charlotte's decision, even if that's not what she would do herself!
