That's certainly true, and the very fact that we can have this kind of conversation about their motivations shows how well-drawn the characters are.

It's interesting to speculate what would happen after the end of the book. It doesn't seem a certainty to me at all that Rhett would continue not to give a damn. Scarlett is nothing if not determined, and having set her mind on Rhett, seems unlikely to want to give up on him without a fight. Also, Rhett was fond of the children - you could see them being a draw.
