What is X?

“Mariane Dashwood was born to an extraordinary fate. She was born to discover the falsehood of her own opinions, and to counteract, by her conduct, her most favourite maxims. She was born to overcome an affection formed so late in life as at seventeen, and with no sentiment superior to strong esteem and lively friendship, voluntarily to give her hand to another!—and THAT other, a man who had suffered no less than herself under the event of a former attachment, whom, two years before, she had considered too old to be married,—and who still sought the constitutional safeguard of a X!”
Who are X, Y, Z and what is B?

“To X it was welcome intelligence—Y had been at B long enough. She attracted him more than he liked—and Z was uncivil to her, and more teasing than usual to himself. He wisely resolved to be particularly careful that no sign of admiration should now escape him, nothing that could elevate her with the hope of influencing his felicity; “
Who says:

"Do you draw? What, none of you? That is very strange. But I suppose you had no opportunity. Your mother should have taken you to town every spring for the benefit of masters."
Who is characterized by the following sentence?
“She was a woman of mean understanding, little information, and uncertain temper.”

Which wedding is described, and who is x?

“The wedding was very much like other weddings, where the parties have no taste for finery or parade; and X, from the particulars detailed by her husband, thought it all extremely shabby, and very inferior to her own.—"Very little white satin, very few lace veils; a most pitiful business!—Selina would stare when she heard of it."—But, in spite of these deficiencies, the wishes, the hopes, the confidence, the predictions of the small band of true friends who witnessed the ceremony, were fully answered in the perfect happiness of the union.”
Who believes to know women through and through by saying:

“A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment.”
Who is the heroine described in the following text:

“No one who had ever seen X in her infancy would have supposed her born to be a heroine. Her situation in life, the character of her father and mother, her own person and disposition, were all equally against her.”
Who says:

“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”
Who is X, who is Y?

“Who can be in doubt of what followed? When any two young people take it into their heads to marry, they are pretty sure by perseverance to carry their point, be they ever so poor, or ever so imprudent, or ever so little likely to be necessary to each other's ultimate comfort. This may be bad morality to conclude with, but I believe it to be truth; and if such parties succeed, how should X and Y, with the advantage of maturity of mind, consciousness of right, and one independent fortune between them, fail of bearing down every opposition?”
"If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more”, is a declaration of love by
