In response to JA & sex outside marriage, written by Linden on May 16, 1998 at 19:39:25
] I'm puzzled by JA's views on sex outside marriage. In almost all cases she obviously considers it shocking, and it ends in disaster for the woman (or near disaster, in Lydia's case).
] But there's one huge exception: Mrs Clay gets away with it in "Persuasion" when she goes off with Mr Elliot. She may even end up as Lady Elliot as a result.
That could be the punishment in itself ;)
