Meg was the first of the March sisters to marry.  While Jo hates the idea of losing a sister, and Marmee worries about what kind of life will they be able together as Mr. Brooks is a poor tutor, Meg's decision to marry Mr. Brooks indicates how much Meg has grown as a woman.  She used to want to marry someone to have a easy, wealthy, glamorous life, but she has instead decided to marry for love, even though it means hard work and less money, which is considered a better virtue of the time.
