11 A C “Mr. Rushworth was from the first struck with the beauty of Miss Bertram.” (Lines 1-2) Mr. Rushworth was so fond about the thought of being married that any female in sight was a good match to him. He does not necessarily find the qualities of Miss Bertram to be attractive and therefore would not have originally cared for her if he had not been disposed to marriage. 15 E C “It was not long before a good understanding took place between this lady and herself.” (Lines 21-23) Mrs. Norris and Mrs. Rushworth were working together towards Mr. Rushworth’s marriage, their understanding was mutual because they have mutual interests. 17 C E “The young people justified these opinions, and an engagement.” (Lines 38-39) To justify is to approve, Miss Betram and Mr. Rushworth agreed on their engagement. With his intentions being marriage and hers being money. Due to their agreement, they are then seen as a match, regardless of the values within the relationship. 18 C B “And no other attempt made at secrecy, than Mrs. Norris’s talking of it everywhere as a matter not to be talked of at present.” (Lines 49-51) The secrecy discussed by Mrs. Norris is that of a fact about the impending marriage that she refuses to share with the two families. 20 B C “He could allow his sister to be the best judge of her own happiness.” (Lines 55-56) Even though Edmund disagrees with his sister, he knows that she is the only one who can truly define her happiness and if that is marrying into money then so be it. 21 A E “If this man had not twelve thousand a Mr. Rushworth lacks in educational skills and intelligence level. Which
Fehrenbacher 3 year, he would be a very stupid fellow.” (Lnes 59-61) therefore concludes he is only respected due to his money because without it he would be poor and stupid.
