Tuti is an Indonesian woman in the novel Layar Terkembang by Sutan Takdir Alisjahbana and Elizabeth Bennet is a typical British woman in the novel Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

The structuralism approach is used in processing data that emphasizes the intrinsic aspects of literature, including characterizations. Data that has been processed then analyzed through feminist literary criticism and explained descriptively which describe the results of characterization analysis in the two kinds of literature. Based on the results of the analysis, it is concluded that the similarity of Tuti and Elizabeth’s views of marriage are women should not deny marriage as part of the journey of life, married by women should be based on common sense, not because of feelings; women are married because of consciousness not because of men’s appeal. Then, the similarity of their views of marriage are women should be given the freedom to empower themselves so they do not always rely on her husband and ignore them, women should be placed as male partners in households, not as rivals or slaves, wife-husband should love each other and seek to live together with realizing hope.
