] Willoughby and Elinor had been in the habit of regular meetings, but they were not formally engaged. Does this show perhaps a lack of concern for propriety on the part of Elinor also?
Um, what about in the following chapter when Mrs Dashwood leaves Marianne alone in the house when she suspects that Willoughby will come calling? I was kind of surprised here, thinking that such a meeting would instead be seen as scandalous. That is, no chaperone present. Or am I being prudish? (My mom would've freaked, and that was the 1980's!)
