Before she married Manet's brother, she wrote to her friend that "I'm reading Darwin; it's hardly subject matter for a woman, even less for an unmarried woman; what I do see clearly is that my situation is unbearable from every point of view." At her wedding, on the register under occupation, she wrote, "No profession." Then to her brother, she wrote, "I've found an honest and excellent young man who, I believe, sincerely loves me. I've entered into the positive side of life after having lived for a long time by chimeras."
