Emma's honeymoon

I finished Emma, although towards the end, I was reading it rather than listening to it. Emma gets to go to the seaside for her honeymoon for two weeks, which is a nice touch. I hadn't realized when I read the book before that although Mr. Knightley owns a large and flourishing estate, he is cash poor, and doesn't even keep horses for his carriage. I believe Emma is the one Jane Austen novel where the heroine is richer than the hero.
