While readers rejoice at Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy's eventual coupling, it's important to realize that her situation is abnormal. The Pride and Prejudice heroine had previously turned down Darcy's marriage proposal in quite a spectacular fashion, listing off things about him that repulsed her. In this novel, the pair reconciles and lives happily ever after, but in most situations this would never happen. It's important to remember that love doesn't always mean second chances, so think about the things you say to significant others.
