Marry your daughter

Whoa wtf? I thought he would end up with Mercedes by the end of the story, but instead he decides to run away with his adoptive daughter. Maybe modern society is turning me into a cuck. The biggest message of this novel is not about revenge, it’s about not being a cuck.

    >adoptive daughter
    You mean his slave, that he bought and introduced to everyone as his slave? Where exactly did you get the fact that he adopted her?

      He clearly saw her as his daughter at first. It was only after she declared her love for him that he saw her as a woman. They’re also like 20 years apart. I feel bad for Mercedes, she didn’t do anything wrong and Edmond still decided to abandon her for the young hot asian woman.

        He didn't abandon her. He exposed Fernand as a complete bastard, which caused Albert and Mercédès to run off in shame, with the former joining the army and the latter to join a convent.

          The book practically says she’s guilty because she didn’t have faith that Edmond would ever return. She gets punished and Edmond sees that punishment as justified, he says in the end that the “she was unfaithful” and chose Haydee even though he still loved Mercedes before. All I’m saying is that I think it’s fricked up for the book to try to justify Mercedes punishment while making Edmond get away with Haydee. I didn’t think Mercedes did anything to deserve that.

            I'm scanning through the text. Nowhere does "unfaithful" appear in the text beyond one part irrelevant to the issue at hand, and Edmond still left her his original nest egg he hid. It sucks for Mercedes but that's the point--in his quest for revenge he fricked over a LOT of other people in the process.

            It had been a long time and both Edmond and Mercedes had changed a lot in that time, their getting back together would never have worked. Furthermore if Mercedes was free to move on after Edmond’s imprisonment then Edmond is free to move on after his revenge. They’re both free individuals who can cope with their situation in whatever way they want.

            Also there is no justification for Edmond ruining the lives of Mercedes and Albert, Edmond clearly feels guilty about it and even vows to help them.

    That's pretty much a non-starter

      She read that Edmond had died, what was she supposed to do? Keep herself a virgin for 14 years waiting for a ghost? I don’t understand why she had to be punished as if she’d done anything wrong.

        She didn't do anything wrong, she's just a fully depreciated asset at that point.

        Stacy would unironically cringe if he tried to marry her at the end of the novel. It was the only way he could maintain frame without looking like a homosexual.

        He's a proto-chud. No forgiveness there.

        She knew what Fernand did and stayed married to him anyway.

      He did find redemption in the end, he forgave the man who made the whole plot against him.

        >he forgave the man who made the whole plot against him.
        After a stressful kidnapping experience where most of his funds are stripped and his hair goes white, meanwhile his wife leaves him (even if she's exiled from high society for cheating on him with Villefort and being the mother of Benedetto), and daughter runs off in a scandalous lesbian relationship. He was only forgiven in that he didn't get it as bad as Villefort or Fernand/Morcerf.
