|Charlotte has a refreshingly
optimistic outlook on love and romance amidst the ever-complex
dating scene of NYC. Well-bred, she walks through life
with a perfect sense of decorum. And a lot of idealism.
For years, Charlotte had a crystalline vision of the life
she wanted to have. First and foremost, she wanted to
get married. She wanted true love. And she wanted her
husband to be wealthy, handsome and belong to the social
elite. Dr. Trey MacDougal seemed her Prince Charming,
but her marriage was far from what she had hoped it would
Not one to give up easily, Charlotte worked hard at
her less-than-perfect union - from dragging Trey to
sex therapy to confronting her meddling mother-in-law
Bunny to quitting her art gallery job to devote herself
to wifely duties.
The sex got better, but when Charlotte decided it was
time to procreate, things began to unravel again. Unable
to conceive naturally, she started hormone therapy and
considered adoption. Trey's reaction to Charlotte's
determination was to pull away and question the decision
to have a child. As Charlotte became aware of their
very different visions of the future, their marriage
quickly dissolved. Giving up her dream of holy matrimony
hasn't been easy, but Charlotte hasn't become embittered
about love or life.
Charlotte met her 36th birthday as a divorcee and came
face to face with her fears of becoming an old maid.
Chin up, she followed the relationship advice of self-help
gurus but had trouble letting go of her feelings of
disappointment and disillusionment over the end of her
marriage. But ever the optimist, Charlotte continued
to believe in love. When her uncouth divorce lawyer,
Harry, proclaimed his lust for her, Charlotte threw
aside her prim and proper ways and had sex for sex's
sake. As the affair continued, though, she realized
she might be falling in love with a man who represented
everything she thought she didn't want.
This realization lead Charlotte to convert to Judaism
in an attempt to land Harry, who had promised his dying
mother that he would only marry a Jew. Charlotte successfully
made the conversion, but was so stressed out from the
whole process that she blew up at Harry, causing the
pair to split. Several weeks of moping around came to
an end when the two ran into each other at a mixer,
with the couple becoming engaged to be married minutes
later. The actual wedding ceremony was somewhat bumpy,
but all indications are that Charlotte has finally managed
to find herself the perfect man.
Charlotte's wardrobe reflects her Park Avenue lifestyle
and feminine charm. Her classic and chic style is timeless.
Pastel pieces coordinated with matching accessories
show off her girlish side.
