in consequence of the missive, GR: Why he may love her, penned by joe m
I think his attraction comes initially as a combination of attraction because Marianne is very attractive physically, emotionally and intellectually (she gets put down as not being the smart sister by some readers, but it is clear she is well read and thoughtful about what she reads), but also because he has a history of being attracted to inaccessible women (his brother's wife) and not being able to protect the women he loves from unhappy fates (his brother's wife and her daughter). He may be hoping for a happier outcome this time. Or maybe JA is trying to show that despite his goodness, he is flawed in his dealings with women?
