** In season 6, [[spoiler: Bertie's mother gives her blessing for Bertie and Edith's engagement, despite Edith's confession that Marigold is her biological daughter, precisely because Edith valued honesty over the happiness and status she would gain from the marriage. Clearly Edith learned her lesson after not telling Bertie her secret backfired horribly.]]

* GoldDigger: Plenty of them! Robert originally married Cora for her fortune. The Duke of Crowborough is interested in marrying Mary only if she inherits the estate. Lady Edith wanted to marry Matthew so she can remain at the estate and inherit in Mary's place. Mary hedges about accepting Matthew’s proposal when it looks like he might not inherit Downton (influence by another, however). Lady Rosamund points out that Mary is marrying Sir Richard solely because he is rich (which [[{{Blackmail}} isn't entirely true]]). The debt-ridden Lord Hepworth wants to marry Lady Rosamund so he can buy back the estates of his childhood home. In the Season 4 finale a broke British lord pursues Martha Levinson and pushes his daughter at her son Harold.
