You make very good points about the unsuitability of a marriage between Edmund and Mary. The scene between Amelia and Anhalt in Act III is full of pretty hot stuff. No wonder Edmund and Mary both wanted to practise with Fanny at first. It would have been very interesting if Edmund had practised some of the lines with Fanny.
Amelia. So you may remember I said when You began to teach me mathematics. I said I had rather not know it—But now I have learnt it gives me a great deal of pleasure—and [hesitating] perhaps, who can tell, but that I might teach something as pleasant to you, as resolving a problem is to me.
Like Anhalt, Edmund has inadvertantly managed to teach Fanny Love. However, Edmund is not in love with his true Amelia, but with one who is merely acting the part.
