As noted below, she's like her mother

in consequence of the missive, Farewell to Norland., penned by Rachel G
Marianne is very much like her mother:
"They [Marianne and Mrs. Dashwood] encouraged each other now in the violence of their affliction. The agony of grief which overpowered them at first, was voluntarily renewed, was sought for, was created again and again. They gave themselves up wholly to their sorrow, seeking increase of wretchedness in every reflection that could afford it, and resolved against ever admitting consolation in future."
I think she comes by her 'romantic tendencies' quite honestly.
