Mr. Bennett is shown as an intelligent man with good sense, Mr. Bennet displays an unfortunate disinterest in most of his family (besides Elizabeth). He seems weary after spending many decades married to the interminable Mrs. Bennet. His complacency is shaken only when Lydia's her poor decisions in Brighton threaten her future.
