I've often thought what a huge burden this must have been for a young man. Not only has he lost his parents - and we know he looked up particularly to his father - but he was suddenly thrust, grieving, into his father's shoes. The welfare of many people depended on his actions, and we know from his housekeeper's testimony how well he looked after his dependents.
What a relief it must have been to him to find a partner who would support him and share his life rather than becoming just another burden. (Or spending his money and using him to gratify her own vanity and ego, as we might speculate was Caroline Bingley's way...)
