Another cousin of her was a clergyman - it wasn't written there if he was better towards her than her first cousin who made her leaving home.
I hate this part, too. This guy is selfish. Submission to God blah blah blah. He wanted her as a wife, so he could have someone to take care of him while he went on his mission serving for God
I don't remember any more dichotomies right now but I promise I will re-read the book and even look for my notes, that's an interesting novel to analyze.
No. He didn't want her as his wife. At least it isn't anything about it. But I have read only a simplified version.
But besides I don't think a bad marriage can be better than no marraige at all. I think some people simply prefer doing different things than running from one court into another and fight for money, kids etc. It makes our life more stressful and we can finish it faster because of such a mess:(

Hahaha yeah that was fun... Last night I stayed up late watching the three last episodes
From what I remember he wanted to marry her (he didn't love her, just God, in my opinion), so they both could devote their lives to God. She refused it later on, though, for she found herself fallin in love with Rochester.

Maybe she would have wished to be a nurse and help people or a doctor?
Where did you find that she wanted to devote her life to God? Personally I think it is funny idea. She simply had a very difficult life and was focused on earning money on her own instead of dreaming about any illusions - devoting her life to God including.
Whatever it means.
