Each girl married a man just like herself. Lizzy and Darcy are both prideful and a little bit arrogant. They seem to make snap judgments about people and then find that they've been wrong.

Mr. Bennet remarks on how similar Jane and Bingley are: I have not a doubt of your doing very well together. Your tempers are by no means unlike. You are each of you so complying, that nothing will ever be resolved on; so easy, that every servant will cheat you; and so generous, that you will always exceed your income."

As for Lydia and Wickham--oh dear. Can there be any hope for those two? Can't you see them constantly flirting with other people? Maybe being unfaithful. But who knows, maybe they really love each other.
