Re: Merope Gaunt: Character Analysis

I think there are several levels of love and I do believe Merope genuinely loved Riddle Sr. But yes she was obsessive too. She wasn't able to see the absurdity of her plan.

We can't really judge the degree of love she really had for him though, because we can't look into her head. However I think that someone who is obsessive wouldn't just set the object of her affection free. Someone who loves obsessively is completely selfish in my opinion and wouldn't consider the feelings of someone else.
