"If I can but see one of my daughters happily settled at Netherfield," said Mrs. Bennet to her husband, "and all the others equally well married, I shall have nothing to wish for."
– Jane Austen
Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 3. The comical and unrealistic ambitions of the obsessive Mrs. Bennet for her five daughters to marry well are superbly satirized by Austen. Mrs. Bennet targets wealthy neighbor Charles Bingley as potential husband for one of her not so well off daughters as soon as he moves into Netherfield.
