You asked about logic.
I'll tell you.
It's that I can't escape my fate.
- Your fate?
- It's not my fate to give up.
- You call marrying Lord Warburton giving up?
- It's getting a great deal, but it's giving up other chances.
- Chances for what?
- I don't mean chances to marry. I mean...
from life...
from the usual chances and dangers.
