Hah! And of course the elopement was the occasion for Mary's proving she was lacking in finer feelings and proper morality, so Edmund felt fully justified in dumping her.

I think this all ties back to your earlier point about the shadow of the Evangelical Revival, the Crawfords as the embodiment of the excesses of the Regency and Fanny and Edmund as the vanguard of the new morality.
