] Running into debt, gambling heavily (Wickham), seducing a young woman, leaving her pregnant and not caring for your child, (Willoughby), commiting adultery (Crawford), I don't think those are trivial sins.
I couldn't agree more! In order to find out how I felt about 'Rakes' I tried to find a word with the same meaning. I came up with womaniser, predator, seducer, manipulator,and Casanova. I don't like any of these things, so why should I like a rake? I decided I don't. Sorry! :-(
