Fanny, the narrator in The Pursuit of Love, 3 has been brought up by her aunt because her mother, soon after her marriage and Fanny's birth, 'bolted'. This was the first of many such flights, and by the time Fanny herself is married, her mother, known in the family as 'the Bolter', has had eight or nine marriages (no one is absolutely sure of the number) and countless affairs.

They may be affected by a spendthrift or faithless wife, or 44 Happily ever after? The consequences of acceptance 45 his way forward can be aided by a wealthy and supportive wife, but essentially his life follows the lines he sets down. A male love story is more about the hero's pursuit of the life he wants to live than about his pursuit of the loved one. The female love story is about the choice of a future. A sensible woman must not only balance passion and practicality, but assess a man's character well enough to predict his future as breadwinner, for despite all the freedom women now have to enter the world of work and earn money, few can achieve anything near economic parity with men.
This difference in perception and viewpoint is one that is often not taken into account when literary critics, particularly male literary critics, evaluate characters created by women novelists. 9 These critics often express their displeasure at the way women portray men in their fiction by claiming that they can't draw male characters realistically, the underlying suggestion being that whereas men can penetrate the complexities of female character, so simple compared to the male, women, cursed by the inadequacies of their sex, cannot create believable men in their fiction.
