] I agree with it being unfair to Jane, but Blanche Ingram, no way. She´s after Rochester for his money and position. She deserves everything that comes her way.
] ] I am with you, Margie. I need a quick dose of Darcy or Knightly or Captain Wentworth as an antidote to Rochester.
] Come on, Rochester does repent in the end and he even tried to save Bertha from the fire. And Darcy is NOT exactly perfect either...He makes me more angry than Rochester ever did.
He has no morals. If he wanted to it was possible for him to have his marriage to Blanche annulled but he does not. Possibly because it means athe return of her substanial dowry? He liek a character on a soap who does horrible things then says, "It's not my fault, folks."
Yes, he does repent, but only after he's lost his sight, his hand and his Jane.
