The Bianca the readers are introduced to at the beginning of the play would never have spoken that way to a man.

The idea that her daughters should marry for gain in material aspects of life was much more important for Mrs. Bennet than for her daughters to marry someone they were in love with.

The novel demonstrates the practicalities of marriage and how often it is done for the wrong reasons.
