In Carol Shield's bio about Jane Austen, she notes that Rev Austen was rather easy going in Jane's upbringing. This was partly because he was so busy with the little school that he ran and his clerical duties, but I imagine it was also part of his character. Perhaps Cassandra Leigh saw this trait too, and thought it a rather fine thing in a husband. I know that I would.
