Three woman and their choices - Page Text Content

BC: Three young women must decide their futures in marriage. Sometimes marriage doesn't always happen for the right reasons and its up to them to make happiness for themselves.

FC: Marital Choices

1: "I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where, I love you simply, without problems or pride."

2: Once upon a time, there were three ladies and each of them were to get married. The first lady, charlotte, was a sensible girl who wanted nothing more than a comfortable house and all her basic needs met. The second, Lydia, was a silly girl who was to wrapped up in the prospect of an attractive soldier as a husband to think of anything besides looks. the third lady, elizabeth, did not focus on the idea of marriage and did not concern herself with money or looks.

3: In their kingdom, a woman had to marry and was dependent on their husbands money. Because of this, many married for the wrong reasons and chose money over love. If a girl was poor and had little dowry, it was less likely that she would marry a rich man; therefore, the girl's place in society would be lowered. For the sake of her offspring and her family, it was a woman's responsibility to marry higher than her own social status and to never marry below it. If she did marry below her own social status her children were then lowered as well. because of this, marriage often happened for the wrong reason and women felt it their obligation to marry for the sake of their children's comfort and her own. If a girl was indifferent to her time period, she might marry for love or, like in Lydia's case, marry for looks. It was very hard for women of their time period to find love when only men of lesser or equal financial level courted them. a woman would consider herself lucky if the man was of equal social status and gave her a comfortable home.

5: One day, Charlotte was looking out her window and spotted a leprechaun. She was a poor, plain looking girl, and was starting to get to old to marry. The thought of staying with her parents for the rest of her life and becoming an old maid scared her and she looked at the financial stable leprechaun coming to her house with interest. He was not attractive and was not the richest leprechaun, but he had enough gold to provide for her. When he showed interest in her she was excited but soon became unhappy with his character. He was a vain leprechaun, by the name of Collin, who constantly spoke of his pot of gold and bragged about the beautiful rainbow that led to it. The rainbow was owned by lady de Bourgh and was one of the largest and most amazing rainbows in the land. Her rainbow and her presence made him seem of higher status than he actually was and this went to his head. After being spurned by the lady Elizabeth, Collin's settled his eyes on Charlotte. Elizabeth turned him down because she could not be wooed by money and comfort alone. Charlotte on the other hand only needed the stability of a house and enough money to provide a comfortable living for herself. She did not love Collin but she readily received his offer of marriage.

7: So, Collin and Charlotte married and they moved into his house beside Lady Catherine de Bourgh's high society rainbow. Upon visiting Charlotte much later, Elizabeth could only feel sorry for her friend. Collin was practically insufferable in his vanity and spent most of his time bragging about his items. His character was far from satisfactory and Charlotte would visibly grimace when her husband spoke. But, she was a simple and humble girl who tried to make the best of her situation and did enjoy her house and the domestic comforts it provided. She purposefully did not make her sitting room the large room in the front of the house with many windows because she did not want a room to close to her husband. She worried he would visit her often so she chose a much smaller room in the back and ignored her husbands vanity with a well posed smile. Some may consider Charlotte's ending happy, because she is well taken care of and secured a financially stable future for herself. Elizabeth tried to be happy for her, but felt sorry that her friend had to choose financial fortitude over felicity in her marriage regarding her husband. This story has reached the end of the rainbow for Charlotte and she did her best to make happiness out of the setting she had created for herself.

9: Meanwhile, Lydia, Elizabeth's silly-headed sister, was trying to get a soldier to court her. She was not a wise girl and had no interest in society or financial responsibility. She bought whatever she wanted, flirted with any soldier she chose, and was generally inconsiderate of anyone besides herself. Upon meeting Wickham, Lydia was completely impressed by this "prince of soldiers" and started to shamelessly flirt with him. The prince was just as financial inept as her and even though he was a prince, he had no money and was in debt. The prince was vain, unruly, and a bad person who was out for his own aims; but, Lydia only concerned herself with his looks. He was ingratiating by nature and Lydia ran off with him against her parents wishes. She abandoned propriety, gave into Wickham's "forbidden fruit," and destroyed her reputation by running away with him and staying alone with him. She bit into the forbidden apple he offered her and was instantly blinded be his charms and looks. She was convinced she loved him but it was merely the effects of his apple and their marriage was based strictly on lust. They had lust, no money, and each others frivolous fancies that only led them into poverty and financial discomfort. Lydia stayed in her apple induced fantasy world in which she was married to a charming prince and believed she lived happily ever after.

11: Unlike her sister, Elizabeth resisted the sinister prince's forbidden fruit and saw him for what he was. She was charmed by his nature at first but resisted and eventually escaped him. In fact, Elizabeth could not be wooed by anyone. She was too wise to marry for looks, but to romantic to marry simply for class and money. After Collins and Wickham, Elizabeth could not see hope in marriage. The only other man in her life was Mr. Darcy, a proud knight from a long line of wealth and honor. He on the other hand, was a pompous twat with little concern for anyone he did not deem worthy; or so Elizabeth thought. Mr. Darcy was proud, but Elizabeth was prejudice against him and only saw what she chose to see about him. Her vision of him was changed completely when he proposed to her one night and she yelled at him for the "supposed" bad things he had done. He wrote a letter to her and explained all of her misconceptions about him. She did not believe him at first but started to reflect on her history with him and slowly started to fall in love when she began to see the truth. Her feelings were pure and Darcy was finally seen as the gallant knight that he was. Her chivalrous knight became more and more attractive to her and he was perfect in her eyes. She was not wooed by his money but he was in fact rich. Elizabeth did not marry for looks or money but she got all three things in the end. Her and Darcy were blissfully in love and lived happily ever after.
