in consequence of the missive, Inconstant & Constant Hearts, penned by Robbin
What does Rushworth see in Maria? The text says that he was struck with her beauty and thought he was in love with her. Mr. Rushworth was from the first struck with the beauty of Miss Bertram, and, being inclined to marry, soon fancied himself in love. Chap. 4
But immediately after his engagement, he apparently rushes off on a visit to his friend. Even later, his behavior does not show a man who has grown to love her. The best that can be said is he is infatuated with her beauty, and does not wish to give her up. Perhaps, he wasn't too successful with women in the past, before he came into his inheritance, and he doesn't wish to give up what he has now.
