Pride and Prejudice

Do you think Mrs.Bennet is a shallow woman, or simply a concerned mother who wants the best for her daughters?

Mrs.Bennet is portrayed as a rather irritating character, who is a social climber. She continually tries to marry her daughters off to rich suitors, but perhaps is it just well meaning from her part.

She is silly and shallow; her main concern is not that her daughters be happy, but rather that they are married and financially taken care of. That's not to say wishing for your daughters to have a financially stable future is a bad thing....... but she was looking for more than stability; she was looking for wealth.
