Suppose Daisy had actually been in love with William and wanted to marry him, but suppose all of the other circumstances surrounding the marriage were the same (i.e. critically wounded, deathbed wedding). Would they still have not consummated the marriage?
I'd be interested in hearing opinions on this, because it has the potential to change the entire dynamic of the situation (i.e. if you think that they would have consummated the marriage were Daisy truly interested then it implies that the real reason for the marriage not being consummated hinged on Daisy's willingness and not on William's physical ability. And the implication that William could have performed leads to the question: if the only thing stopping them was Daisy's willingness, how would she have gotten around that? If William wanted to consummate the marriage could she have looked him in the eye and told him that she didn't want to?
So basically what I'm asking is was William so badly injured that he and Daisy wouldn't have consummated the marriage even if they both wanted to and if he wasn't then how would Daisy have gotten around it?
