Which Bennet Sister do you resemble?
by Ashley Duncan

Did you read Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" AND see the movie? If so, you may have found yourself identifying with one of the famous Bennet sisters. Take this quiz to see if you most resemble the one you think you do.

Back in the day, women could not inherit property, so poor Mr. Bennet needed to make sure that at least one of his daughters made a marriage match that was good enough to support the rest of the family after Papa Bennet passed away. Surely, with five daughters, at least one was likely to make a suitable match. But having five daughters means that there are five personalities to wrangle into a marriage, and that can't be easy. Especially since most of us prefer to marry for love, not just money. Sure, a marriage that includes both would be ideal, but let's not put too much pressure on the daughters, okay?

So, if you want to know which of the Bennet sisters you're most like, make sure you've got one in mind - choose from Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty or Lydia - and then get started with this quiz to see if we agree.

Let's find out which sister you're most like.
