So he will play the game of the Absurd; he himself will live as long as he can, giving his life his meaning, even though he knows that ultimately, it has no meaning. He will watch and measure his life's meaning as he faces what he hopes to be a howling mob. If he is so hated and such a threat to that mob of people, he will be able to laugh at their fear of him. He does not fear their hatred. He can determine the extent of his importance by measuring how thoroughly he is a threat to them. Meursault can imagine dying, enjoying the absurdity of his rejection.

When Meursault agrees to marry her, Marie is happy. Meursault will probably be an adequate husband; he will probably have a steady job, an income that she needn't worry about, and she doesn't ask much more from a man. Like Meursault, she does not demand much from life or from other people. Marie is on the fringe of this novel, even though Meursault has agreed to marry her. But one should remember that she had great hope for her new life in Paris with Meursault. She is much more of a romantic than he is.
