“Women still read Jane Austen!” says project promoting Jane Austen
Two centuries on women still dream of their Mr Darcy
Two centuries on from Pride and Prejudice women still dream of their Mr Darcy, but they want him for love not money.
Most people believe that love is central to a happy relationship, a new survey has found, with 86 per cent saying that it comes above money as the most important reason to tie the knot.
A further 46 per cent believe that there is a “Mr or Mrs Right” for everyone, according to a YouGov poll seen by the Times.
