] So getting a rich husband is a victory becuase she will not pine about love- unlike Willoughby who does pine for Marianne.
Just because she married into money doesn't mean Lucy would be happy. Can you imagine spending time with Fanny and Mrs. ferrars on a regular basis? Talk about the holiday from hell. I would not want to be part of that family; you could not turn your back for one moment. Lucy may have married into money, but that doesn't mean she will be happy. In time, Lucy will probably turn into Fanny, not happy unless she is making others miserable.
