But the long awaited marriage doesn’t waste any time developing problems. Matthew inherits a ton of money from his dead fiance’s father and wants to do the right thing and give it away. Mary, who doesn’t really understand the concept of the right thing, throws a shit fit about his selfishness. How can he think of others when he could be thinking of her? Like seriously does he want to help the less fortunate or does he want to donate it to the Keep The Downton Abbey Servants Employment Agency open?! Even though Mary totally loves Matthew, she doesn’t get why he must always take the high road. Chauffeurs can drive on both the high and the low road so there’s really no reason for him to act like he’s above helping rich people stay rich.
