He spends without thought. He drinks and gambles and makes reckless purchases. How is that possible if the family has no money? I'm led to believe that his sister is a gold-digger (thus, her fascination with plain-ol' Mr. Morland), and if the family has enough money for Mr. Thorpe to live as a complete waistrel, then it makes no sense for her to be so.
