apparently, how to tell whether you meet Jane Austen’s conditions for getting engaged

  1. Do you recognize this person’s family name?
  2. Is this person richer than you?
    1. If yes: you should get engaged, like, instantly.
    2. If no: as long as he or she is not so poor that his or her family can count their number of live-in servants on one hand or less, who the heck cares?  You own half the spoils of the frakking British Empire anyway.
  3. Is this person of higher social station than you?
    1. If yes: you should get engaged now now now now.
    2. If no: as long as he or she is not at peon or indentured servant level, who the frak cares?
  4. Does at least one parent approve?
  5. Does at least one parent disapprove?
  6. Have you met this person more than zero times?
