One rule about manners: One who doesn't have it, is looked down upon.
Marriage is not only the relation between people who love each other. Social class matters more.
If one doesn't have money, it is hard for them to get married.
Throughout the book, characters are classfied and stereotyped.
Mrs. Bates
Harriet Smith
Doesn't know who her father is; loss of identity
Always helped with transportation and is always thanking rich people; makes her seem small
Rich family = Good manners

Only considers rich women for marriage
Topics that women talk about are different from men
Marriage/ Men/ Gossip about everyone
Weather or no communication/ Cards
