Charlotte Bronte--in love?:

I just finished re-reading Villette.

Wow! Charlotte Bronte is a master of dialog--real people talking. Anything good that I do with dialog, I learned from her, I guess.

Now I'm reading Mrs. Gaskell's Life of Charlotte Bronte (one of my mother's favorite books).

Question: When Charlotte married Mr. Nicholls, did she find bliss at last, or did she "settle"? That is, was she marrying for love, or for other reasons? Or was she just confused, like the rest of us?
I always thought she found bliss at last. Finally, a soulmate. But, now I'm starting to wonder.
