Love
The courtship between Darcy and Elizabeth. At the Beginning, Elizabeths pride makes her misjudge Darcy on the basis of a poor first impression, while Darcys prejudice against Elizabeths poor social standing blinds him. Austen poses countless smaller obstacles to the realization of their love including
Lady Catherines attempt to control her nephew Miss Bingleys snobbery Mrs. Bennets idiocy Wickhams cheating

Austen views love as something independent of these social forces, as something that can be captured.

Using the character of Charlotte Lucas to demonstrate that the heart does not always enjoin marriage.
Austen suggests that true love is a force separate from society and one that can conquer even the most difficult of condition.

Reputation
Pride and Prejudice represents a society in which a womans reputation is of the utmost importance. A woman is expected to behave in certain ways. For example : when Elizabeth walks to Netherfield and arrives with muddy skirts to the shock of the reputation-conscious Miss Bingley and her friends. when Lydia elopes with Wickham and lives with him out of wedlock, the author treats reputation as a very serious matter.
