Social stature is in short supply among the Bennet family. Lydia's disgrace casts a further shadow on the Bennet sisters dwindling options for suitors. In early nineteenth-century England, a young lady's elopement is cause for great scandal to the entire family. The shock and dismay of Elizabeth and the entire family are quite understandable. Elizabeth realizes that this "scandal" will affect how Mr. Darcy feels about her.
