Specific relationships/marriages: One of the best things about Austen's view on marriage as a whole is that while she does seem to admire love, she on the whole is just encouraging relationships that will bring happiness. In Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth's case, that happiness took some time to develop, as their love-while intense- is different from others'. For Jane and Bingley, their happiness was found after defying all of the obstacles that set them apart. However, for both Charlotte with Mr. Collins and Lydia with Mr. Wickham, happiness is elusive. Their motives are not love, bu rather for security and wealth, so while Austen doesn't seem to be specifically discouraging that behavior, she does seem to encourage honest morals and respectable motives that will lead anyone to happiness.
