I decided to go back to my all-time classic book for marry, date or dump this week. Pride and Prejudice. Yes, you might think that everyone would chose Darcy. But there are actually a lot of secret Bingley fans out there. And I’ve met at least two people who would vehemently argue that Colonel Fitzwilliam is the man for them. I have to admit I was partially inspired by Emery Lord’s new(ish) book The Start of You and Me, which I read last week and features a Jane vs. Lizzy/Bingley vs. Darcy debate that I was a little obsessed with. So anyways, have at it! Of these three characters, tell me in the comments who you would marry, who you would date, and who you would dump.
Here are my picks:
- Marry: Darcy ( I can totally understand all the arguments for why both Bingley or Fitzwilliam would be better husbands, but I don’t care. Lake scene + Pemberley = no other option for me.)
- Date: Fitzwilliam (I love him in the book *less so in the movie* and think that if he wasn’t poor he and Lizzy would have definitely ended up together. Although that would have made the story much less interesting, so I’m glad that didn’t happen!)
- Dump: Charles (This is basically by default, but I also think I’d find his incessant optimism a little annoying. Also those sisters!)
