|Marianne a bit of a "drama" queen??

Looking back on the end of Ch 15 and the beginning of Ch 16 Miss Austen really begins to reveal the very diverging personalities of the two older Dashwood sisters. I think the long drawn-out over-the-top emotional behavior of Marianne mourning the sudden departure of Willoughby would label her in contemporary language as a "drama" queen. Indeed, after a day or two, I'd probably be encouraging Marianne to "give it a rest" or "get over it." I mean her misery just goes on and on. Of course my observations and opinions come from the fatherly side and probably a great deal of the women here would label me as stone cold. Were you a parent of Marianne, how long would you put up with it before you said "enough?"
