in consequence of the missive, I agree with that view. Why leave a friendship of long, penned by AnnetteJ
abusive? Or why is there a strong doubt of it being possible? I have read this argument from other posters, and I wonder how they can possibly know -- in real life people outside the abused family rarely know that someone is abusing a spouse, etc.
BTW, I am not trying to claim that Mr Collins WILL be an abusive husband, only that there is no knowing for certain either way.
IMO Charlotte is making a mistake, based solely on what we do know about Mr Collins (that he is a pompous fool). I agree w/ Elizabeth's assessment -- and have done so for nearly 50 years. :-)
