Les asked M.C. Beaton:

Why is Agatha so emotionally invested in finding a husband? Overall she doesn't seem to be a very sentimental person. She's had so many relationships that have turned into train wrecks, but as soon she meets the latest newcomer to the area she starts envisioning wedding bells. But I guess hope springs eternal...

M.C. Beaton For all her toughness, Agatha is a romantic and like all romantics is emotionally immature so that’s why she keeps making so many mistakes.
