Jane perfectly fits the criteria of a confidante because she is optimistic and sanguine, in which she can provide Elizabeth a different, more positive, approach to her problems. The author uses Jane Bennet to portray a paradigm of a young lady in England during that time period, where marriages depended on money and family relations; she is a counterexample of Elizabeth because Elizabeth is more rebellious and against the status quo of the time period, whereas Jane would gladly fulfill her parents’ decisions for her. Although she might not be aware of it, Jane actually proves to be remarkably essential in Elizabeth’s engaging with Mr. Darcy; whenever Jane and Mr. Bingley are together Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have an opportunity to converse and, ultimately, fall in love with each other. Elizabeth seems to be a more realistic character than her benevolent sister, Jane. Elizabeth is able to scrutinize and recognize that people are definitely deceiving and limited.
Mr. Bennet seems to have a quiet deep love for his daughters while, on the contrary, Mrs. Bennet’s love is over-acted and conditional. Both parents help to shape their daughters’ characteristics and beliefs: Lydia reflecting Mrs. Bennet’s flighty and excessive behavior while Elizabeth inherits Mr. Bennet’s pensive and reflective temperament. Looking past their dissimilar personality traits and contradicting convictions, both parents hold the family together and play an integral role in the household structure. The constant topic among the majority of the women in the Bennet household was marriage and future suitors. Mrs. Bennet prides in the hope that someday all her daughters will be married off to wealthy individuals who can even help support the Bennet family and increase their social status: “The business of her life was to get her daughters married...” (9).
