Charlotte York Character

In the TV series The Sex and the City, it is shown that Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) has a very complicated and a blend of different characteristics. Her character has evolved over a period of time and is a result of the ups and downs she has witnessed in her life that are affecting her relationships as well. To shed a light on her life, Charlotte has had a conventional, privileged Episcopalian Connecticut upbringing and works in an art gallery. She is optimistic and extremely romantic and believes in finding true love. She is a supporter of monogamy and all her relationships have been in search of finding the one person who will stay with her all her life which is why she only dates men of pedigree and money.

Harry Goldenblatt Character

In the series, it is shown that Harry is Charlotte’s divorce lawyer who helps her in filing a divorce against Trey resulting in the end of the marriage. Harry is a bald guy, has hairs all over his body, is raw, sweaty, and has poor manners. Harry has completely different traits from what Charlotte seeks in a man. While helping Charlotte in the divorce filing, he falls in love with her and starts seducing her. They both do get intimate and after the sex, Charlotte claimed it to be the best sex of her life.

Charlotte and Harry’s Relationship

Harry and Charlotte met during divorce filing, and they both fell for each other. Initially, Charlotte thought it to be a meaningless sexual affair with him but later she also began falling for him. Since, Harry doesn’t possess the qualities Charlotte seeks in a man, so she tries to change him in the initial phase of their relationship, but she fails and accepts him as he is. She also gives up her dreams for the sake of marriage and agrees to convert to Judaism for him (the only requirement that Harry had). Harry also notices her efforts and appreciates her sacrifices for him.

Charlotte does several blind dates with Harry and tells him not to be seen with her in public as he looks ugly. One night, they both meet at a local synagogue single’s night where Charlotte admits that she is already in love with him and wants to marry him at any cost. Without wasting time Harry proposes to her right there, in front the everyone, and they both decide to get married.

Harry and Charlotte Breakup

Charlotte has had few relationships in the past that had shaped her current personality. She expected Harry to propose to her, but Harry didn’t show up. The events in the series turn awful as instead of proposing to Charlotte, he backlashes on her. Soon, Charlotte called him ugly and doesn’t want to be seen with him. She also went ahead and calls it a matter of shame to be with him. However, soon anger fades away as love again takes its toll and they both come together to get married.

The couple then decides to have a baby. Charlotte gets pregnant, but she loses her baby due to a miscarriage. This traumatic incident severely affects her mental state and hurts her emotionally. To cope up this, the couple decides to adopt a baby, and later it is shown in the series that the couple does adopt a Chinese girl named Lily as their child.

However, the worst part of the relationship comes when Charlotte speculates that Harry is having an affair with their kid’s nanny named Erin which creates havoc in the sweet couple’s life. However, all the misunderstandings later come to a full stop when she realizes that Erin is a lesbian. The couple lives happily thereafter.
