] ]Mr. Bennett doesn't strike me as cruel just sarcastic and having some fun with Mary, who takes things way too seriously. He is also self-deprecating and sees the humor in his situation--married to a woman he doesn't regard, having limited financial assets, no heir and three very silly daughters. I believe he views Lizzie most like him in intellect and he respects Jane for her goodness.
