in consequence of the missive, pregnancy, penned by Bridget D
She alone is punished, while Willoughby has gone on to do well for himself.
Under these circumstances when Eliza has her whole life ahead of her with bringing up a girl, whose life in turn is also not what it should have been, one can stop looking for blaming her IMO.
Even before having the baby she was duly punished throughout her pregnancy with the uncertainty and loneliness of it all.
In spite of the society of that time not accepting pregnancies before marriage, it did happen as many have mentioned.
Till then both were responsible, and the man showed decency by marrying her.
The 'blame' here is not of the pregnancy but the handling of it IMO
When someone murders anyone the murderer is fully blamed, even if the one murdered was equally responsible for the situation of enmity or whatever.
For me this is as serious as murder, considering the times and effects of such a situation.
