“The trouble is not that I am single and likely to stay single, but that I am lonely and likely to stay lonely.” 

Charlotte made an excellent point. Loneliness can be insufferable.
Miss Bronte finally did marry. She married her longtime admirer, Arthur Bell Nicholls, in June of 1854 at age 37. She became pregnant soon after but, sadly, died, along with her unborn child, in March of 1855 at the age of 38. The reason for her early death has caused much speculation, but many biographers believe she died from dehydration, and malnutrition, due to severe morning sickness. kqd
