Give two reasons why Elizabeth refused Darcy's marriage proposal
Answers 1Add Yours
Elizabeth actually gives Darcy three reasons for rejecting his proposal.
1) He speaks to her in a condescending manner and believes himself socially superior.
2) Darcy requested her hand in marriage, all while noting how he loved her against his will.
3) His proposal reeked of arrogance. It was anything but a pledge of love and commitment.
