I have to differ with you both! :-) If he had been able to stick to his guns and resist Maria(the only reason he and Mrs Rushworth ran off was because he did not like her mad at him) he probably would have married Fanny. She was just beginning to feel a kindness towards him. He was attracted to her because the qualities of goodness, she was better than anyone he had ever met. I can't pull any quotes right now. But he did not IMHO, have any moral fortitude. Big negative for me anyway, and esp in 1812! He and Mary only showed remorse for being caught, not for doing anything bad!
