All of this is a mere trifle when there are Lydias in delicate conditions to carry up to bed and ply with the finest truffles and a little taste of the strong stuff. I think Whickham did have a thing for young girls. Wickham was an opportunist and a money lover. He is not happy with his marriage. The elopement was a lie.
