The opinion of your family and friends can play a big part on your choice of a romantic partner. Usually your family and friends just want the best for you so they want you to find someone you love but and sustain a life with you in it. This can be good or bad depending on the person and reason. We see these types of decisions in Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen, were the daughters are influenced by their parents, close friends and even sisters. Bingely and Jane’s relationship was kind of brought together through family and friends. She started to fall for bingleys charm in chapters Bingley and Jane’s relationship was kind of brought together through family and friends. She started to fall for Bingley’s charm and then after a while of being together Bingley purposes and they get engaged. She falls for him after the ball, we see this is in chapter 6 when Elizabeth was talk to Lucas saying “it was generally evident whenever they met that he did admire you, and to her it was equally evident…was in a way to be very much in love.” Then in a couple of days Mr. Bingley and his party visit the Bennets, who then visits Bingley. Mr. Bingley still admires Jane and she is very much in love with him still. Elizabeth and her friend Charlotte talk about how Jane should behave towards Mr. Bingley. While Elizabeth thinks that she should act in a natural way, Charlotte has the opinion that a woman has to act purposefully in order marry well.

Darcy first proposes to Elizabeth in Ch.34. She is alone in Collins' house as Charlotte and Collins have gone over to Lady Catherine's house. Elizabeth is suffering from a head ache which was a consequence of her being upset and crying after she had learnt from Col. Fitzwilliam Darcy that Darcy was responsible for separating Bingley from Jane:"he (Darcy) congratulated himself of having lately saved a friend [Bingley] from the inconveniences of a most imprudent marriage." In chapter 33. Just then Darcy arrives and then all of a sudden he blurts out his marriage proposal to her saying "you must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." Elizabeth is astonished, and for a few moments speechless, and then composes herself and rejects him. Darcy's second proposal takes place at Longbourn in Ch. 58. He proposes to her when both of them go out for a walk. This time, the scene begins on a very happy note as Bingley and Elizabeth have already been united in Ch.55 and more significantly, Elizabeth thanks Darcy for all that he has done to make Wickham marry Lydia and thus saving the Bennet family honor.
