In response to Charlotte and Mr. Collins, written by Sara J on November 20, 1997 at 19:15:44
I've always thought it was sad that Charlotte's options seemed so dismal, but I think her choice was the best one for her. She goes into her marriage with her eyes wide open as to her husband's limitations, but she thinks it's better than her alternative -- spinsterhood.
I don't think the marriage was happy the way Lizzy's and Darcy's was, but that both Charlotte and Mr. Collins were content with the choices they made.
