Difficult

Respect in marriage

PRIDE-EEYXZQ

Which of the following opinions supports the theme that the perfect marriage should have mutual respect and honesty?

A

"Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance."

B

"I know you could be neither happy nor respectable, unless you truly esteemed your husband; unless you looked up to him as a superior."

C

"...but if she is really headstrong and foolish, I know not whether she would altogether be a very desirable wife."

D

"Consider Mr. Collins's respectability, and Charlotte's prudent, steady character. Remember that she is one of a large family; that as to fortune, it is a most eligible match; and be ready to believe, for every body's sake, that she may feel something like regard and esteem for our cousin."

E

"Such I was, from eight to eight and twenty; and such I might still have been but for you, dearest, loveliest Elizabeth! What do I not owe you! You taught me a lesson, hard indeed at first, but most advantageous. By you, I was properly humbled."
