"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife."
This quote is one of the famous quotes in in english literature, solemenly on the fact that it beholds a truth and a great foreshadowing to a whole sequence of events.
It foreshadows the patriarchal societal views of Elizabeth Bennet's time. However, I would like to know where in the book is the greatly shown?
A more specific question would be; what specific event does this line foreshadow, and how does that event affect the course of the story and other characters?
