Pride and Prejudice Volume 3, Chapter 9

Lydia and Wickham come home for ten days, and although Elizabeth, Jane, and Mr. Bennet are uncomfortable with the marriage, Lydia, Wickham, and Mrs. Bennet act as if nothing wrong had been done. Lydia tries to rub in the fact that she's the youngest and she's the only married one. As they enter the dining room Lydia expects Jane to give up her spot at her mother's right hand at the table and says, "Ah! Jane, I take your place now, and you must go lower, because I am a married woman." Volume 3, Chapter 9, pg. 217 This behavior bugs Elizabeth because of the shame Lydia has thoughtlessly brought on her family and the lack of remorse she shows for doing it. Then Lydia is describing her wedding to Elizabeth when she mentions that Darcy was there. She won't say anything else about him because it was supposed to be a secret, so Elizabeth writes to her aunt to find out what Darcy was doing there.
