in consequence of the missive, Adult guidance, penned by Bridget D
young women ended up pregnant. That is, quite simply, incorrect. Eliza may have known the possible consequences AND she have had a moral base, and still she could have succumbed to a handsome man with whom she fell in love.
Passions have been known to overcome rational thinking and morality, in my experience. We really do not know whether Eliza was a "girl with apparnetly not much brain," as you call her, or merely a young woman whose passions overcame her. How her situation ended does NOT justify an assumption of stupidity and/or immorality.
