Pride and Prejudice

Do you think the era portrayed in pride and prejudice, to the majority of people, money was more important than love?

One of the main themes in the novel, pride and prejudice, is love, while at the same time there is a lot of emphasis on the importance of girls marrying to improve their social and financial status.

Definitely, marriages rarely occurred in the upper classes because they were "love matches," although I'm sure loving marriages existed. Marriage was a contract entered into for the best interests of the "family" as a whole.
