] Jane Austen is my favorite in the world! but, I do agree that after much contemplation I cannot reconcile to the fact that marianne Dashwood is happy!
... and to find the proof of that, we need look only to Aunt Jane herself, for she says:
Marianne could never love by halves; and her whole heart became, in time, as much devoted to her husband, as it had once been to Willoughby.
Unless, of course you are intimating that JA did not know her own heroine's hearts!
