in consequence of the missive, Inducements for Wickham, penned by Karen G
"Mr. Darcy asked him why he had not married your sister at once? Though Mr. Bennet was not imagined to be very rich, he would have been able to do something for him, and his situation must have been benefited by marriage. But he found, in reply to this question, that Wickham still cherished the hope of more effectually making his fortune by marriage in some other country. Under such circumstances, however, he was not likely to be proof against the temptation of immediate relief. (52)
I don’t think Wickham had any idea of cashing in on the Bennets or the Gardiners. One reason may be he knew they could not bribe him with immediate relief nor give him much and in marrying Lydia would have to up his dream of making his fortune by marriage. He probably just wished to avoid them—Darcy though had much deeper pockets. I think Wickham thought of Lydia as disposable. (:D)
