I think we have already established Willoughby had no regard for the rules of society. Perhaps we should not be too surprised at his bursting in unannounced! Yet the actual reasons for Willoughby's confession-the guilts, remorse, or simply wanting the Dashwoods to think slightly less ill of him-still eludes me. Perhaps J.A. left it to her readers' judgement.
