in consequence of the missive, Interesting, but I am moreover inclined to think that..., penned by Adrian
I agree with you, actually. I think Mr. Bennet does know his behavior towards his wife is wrong but only Lizzy and Darcy and the narrator say anything against it and I am not sure he sees himself as unrespectable. When Mr. Bennet talks about discredit and respectability I feel he is speaking on how Lizzy would be viewed by society if her lively talents turned sarcastic against her husband. I do think a woman who acted without respect towards her husband would be judged more harshly by the public than a man who does the same to his wife. Of course her father’s worries are moot because Lizzy does respect and esteem Darcy. ;D
