Willoughby's Uncontrolled Sensibilities

Although I could see why Marianne found Willoughby so attractive, I do believe he would have eventually crushed her spirit. While there was enormous chemistry between them initially - because of their similar passionate and romantic natures, I think Willoughby differed from Marianne, in that he possessed a selfish and uncontrollable need to satisfy his sensual and passionate needs without concern for any negative consequences or impact on others. Marianne, on the other hand, not only possess a passionate nature, but also a loyal heart. Once she fell in love, that love was intense, constant, and true. Even if they married (even if they had money), he might still have had affairs - even if he still loved Marianne. I believe, Marianne would not be able to accept this type of betrayal and would be greatly crushed. As she was used to openly showing her feelings, her disappointment & disillusion would end her love for him. She would be trapped in an unhappy marriage.
