From the very beginning— from the first moment, I may almost say— of my acquaintance with you, your manners, impressing me with the fullest belief of your arrogance, your conceit, and your selfish disdain of the feelings of others, were such as to form the groundwork of disapprobation on which succeeding events have built so immovable a dislike; and I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry." ~ Elizabeth, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice

(Spoiler: She marries him.)

Despite pride, prejudice, and many, many dances in between, Darcy and Elizabeth find love and happiness in a tale that has entertained audiences for generations - causing men to groan and shake their heads, and for women to berate them whilst swooning over Darcy's wet shirt!

So here's to one of the most-loved couples in literature - Mr and Mrs Darcy!!

True. But I still think it's ironic how vehemently against marrying him she was...considering the outcome later on! It just shows how emotions, and feelings, can alter greatly.


Olivia (olivia1395) | 1948 comments Very true! Have you watched the Lizzie Bennet Diaries on YouTube? They're fantastic and I highly recommend watching them.

LBD was the best! And I do too!


Daphne I love this couple. I don't even know why. It's probably one of the most well know couples in book history! Maybe.
