Right from the beginning Lady Sneerwell states that there's no relationship between her and Joseph. She explains that Joseph is interested in Maria, or in her fortune. As he finds that Maria is interested in Charles,his brother, he goes to Lady Sneerwell  in order to help him to make Maria love him. Lady Sneerwell accepts to help him only because she wants to gain Charles as her lover. Look at (Act1,Scene1).  

I hope this  would help.
