Abstract

This thesis examines the problem of marriage in the early 19thcentury and the late 20thcentury through two magnificient novels: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones 's diary. I will prove that finding a suitable husband was easier in the time of Jane Austen than it is in Bridget Jones's period. Using both contemporary and earlier examinations of the topic, I will demonstrate that it is more difficult to establish efficient relationships nowadays, than it was in the time of Jane Austen's main character Elizabeth Bennet's. Thus, I am trying to investigate the origins of the fact that there are more single persons now than at the turn of the 19th century.
