in consequence of the missive, Wickham/Soldiers: admittance into society, penned by BarbaraB
By dining the officers, the Phillipses are encouraging the girls to marry regardless of fortune (officers’ pay was quite low) just to not have to support them in the future.
On the other hand, Gardiners seem to be genuinely concerned about their nieces and seem like the people who would not mind supporting them if need be. I always though that this was one of the reasons Elizabeth, unlike Charlotte, did not feel the pressure to marry.
