I am not romantic, you know; I never was. I ask only a comfortable home; and considering Mr. Collins’s character, connection, and situation in life, I am convinced that my chance of happiness with him is as fair as most people can boast on entering the marriage state.

– Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 22. Charlotte speaks about her expectations from marriage to Elizabeth, who has expressed surprise at her engagement to Mr. Collins. Charlotte is certainly going into marriage with her eyes wide open, not interested in romance or love, but seeking only a comfortable home and "fair" chance of happiness.
