in consequence of the missive, I agree. This is a situation..., penned by Reeba
Reading recent messages and rereading the older ones to tune in again I just can't change my mind. Judging by one's standards is inevitable even if you can understand the other and his arguments (Charlotte in this case and those of you supporting her). She has made her choice, but in her place I wouldn't do the same (regarding era&society and being not romantic myself). I would prefer one of the alternatives. I don't believe Mr Collins could change to someone cruel, bad etc and prove her wrong for choosing him. He is enough stupid, pompous and annoying as he is. I don't believe him to be a bad father in other way than setting a bad example for raising reasonable children. Elizabeth and Mr Bennet are rather surprised with Charlotte's choice in an unpleasant way. Who wouldn't? Charlotte is an autonomous human being, even in a book, and can decide for herself. I thought her overestimating her power to bear nonsense and occasional embarassment, but maybe she has thought over that more than I assumed. So, I'm fine with her decision but cannot agree with her priorities even in a society as such
PS:I hope it wasn't too rude disapearing from this thread for a while...:-)
