esp, I think where Melanie's acceptance of Philip's ways comes into play is that they have similar moral codes. You are right on all counts about Melanie not being happy with Philip by the eg given. However, I don't think her acceptance would change if she became the victim of Phillip's criminal behavior ie if it was melanie who was thrown into a morgue drawer. Of course the future is all dependent on the stroke of a pen but my guess is that Melanie would be more resourceful when it came to being victimized. This is not a slam against Stephanie, I'm just saying Stephanie is more innocent, therefore more susceptible.
You might be right about Melanie being more accepting even if she were thrown in a morgue drawer, I just don't think it's the given that others seem to think it is. I also don't think she "accepts" Philip for who he is any more than Stephanie does, she just has different issues. I think, just like Stephanie, she loves/is attracted to the Philip she wants to see, not the real deal. But, that's probably just me.
