Edith (Downton Abbey) - 11 Characters Who Have the Worst Luck in Love
Poor Edith. She's probably had the worst luck of the bunch. She loved Patrick, but he was bethrothed to Mary and then he died. Edith then started a relationship with Sir Anthony Strallen, but Mary drove him away. Edith's fortune seemed to improve when Patrick showed up alive after all. Was he really Patrick or a fraud? That remains unclear, but Edith was left alone again when he left because of the family's doubts. Edith and Sir Anthony Strallen got back together and were even engaged. Edith was finally in love and getting married ... until Anthony left her at the altar. Yes, she's had terrible luck in love. And, it didn't get better from there. She started seeing Michael Gregson, a newspaper man, only to find out he was already married. He decided to go to Germany to get a divorce to marry Edith. Positive, right? Not really. He disappeared in Germany and Edith's now pregnant with his child from their one night together before he left.
