A Tale of Two Choices by Bassoonist
"Married" echoed Lady Withenstrop with characteristic exuberance. "But my darling, this is too wonderful. To whom? How much land does her father own? What is the dowry?"

Lord Withenstrop peered over the top of the stairs, having heard his wife's less than dulcet tones, and even at that moment starting to mentally pay off his debts.

"Well mother, father, the woman I have married is...
the daughter of a rich northern mill owner. They are coming up the drive now."
