in consequence of the missive, We need to distinguish, penned by Adrian
It is not wrong for Elizabeth to object to Mr. Collins on the basis that she knows she could never even respect him, let alone love him, because she is objecting to real aspects of his character that are not going to go away, improve, or be possible to overlook.
I agree that for Charlotte, these objections do not hold weight compared to the prospect of a secure home and not to be dependant on her parents and brothers forever, but it does not mean that the objections are not valid, all the same.
Someone like Marianne, though, was objecting on romantic principle that was not really valid, based on superficial details--and she realized this herself later.
