I could get the general sense of this sentence, but I'm so confused by the wording.
Does "where" mean "in which" or "to which", or something else?
And what does "to every other objection" mean?
If to rephrase the clause, should it be:
a. in addition to other objection, the family would be added in an alliance and relationship of the nearest kind with the man / whom he so justly scorned
b. the family would be added an alliance and relationship of the nearest kind with the man whom he so justly scorned to every other objection
But , if b. is right, then why use "where", not "which"?
The context is that:
Wickham and Lydia got married; Elizabeth, the sister of Lydia, was sad, for she knew that from now on there is no chance for her and Darcy, because Darcy hated Wickham.
Here is the sentence:
Elizabeth was now most heartily sorry that she had, from the distress of the moment, been led to make Mr. Darcy acquainted with their fears for her sister, for since her marriage would so shortly give the proper termination to the elopement, they might hope to conceal its unfavourable beginning from all those who were not immediately on the spot.
She had no fear of its spreading farther, through his means. There were few people on whose secrecy she would have more confidently depended, but at the same time, there was no one whose knowledge of a sister’s frailty would have mortified her so much. Not, however, from any fear of disadvantage from it individually to herself, for at any rate there seemed a gulf impassable between them. Had Lydia’s marriage been concluded on the most honourable terms, it was not to be supposed that Mr. Darcy would connect himself with a family, where to every other objection would now be added an alliance and relationship of the nearest kind with the man whom he so justly scorned.
From such a connection she could not wonder that he should shrink. The wish of procuring her regard, which she had assured herself of his feeling in Derbyshire, could not in rational expectation survive such a blow as this. She was humbled, she was grieved; she repented, though she hardly knew of what. She became jealous of his esteem, when she could no longer hope to be benefited by it. She wanted to hear of him, when there seemed the least chance of gaining intelligence. She was convinced that she could have been happy with him, when it was no longer likely they should meet.
