I have always found this bit of information amusing. So many think this era was full of perfectly behaved people doing nothing but attending balls. This shows that is certainly not the case!
The busybodies in Meryton would've PREFERRED to gossip about Lydia becoming a prostitute or being confined to a country house because Wickham left her pregnant but they'll be content with gossiping about the fact that she'll be miserable with him as a husband.
They're just as mean spirited as people today! :)
