Certainly the story is realistic in its overall theme portrayal. Lovers are often betrayers as is Compeyson to Ms. Havisham. Betrayed people often become bitter as does Ms. Havisham. Children are raised by parents to believe whatever parents want them to believe as happens to Estella. The obvious existence of a criminal element is always there in any society.
