St. John Rivers is going to India to aid orphans and serve the Lord. He has told Jane to accompany him as his wife so that they may serve together. Although neither of the two characters love each other. Jane refuses his request. “Can I receive from him the bridal ring, endure all the forms of love (which I doubt not he would scrupulously observe) and know that the spirit was quite absent? Can I bear the consciousness that every endearment he bestows is a sacrifice made on principle? No: such a martyrdom would be monstrous. I will never undergo it.” This conclusion is important because it is the entire turning point of the novel, moreover Jane’s life. The protagonist learns and teaches us that ethics and morality are as important as passion and love. Jane learns that all this love that she has been lacking is only hurting and not helping her. The role of love is significant in “Jane Eyre” because this story is about how Jane learned to love and why it was important.
