Why is it OK for Robert F. to marry Lucy Steele, but Edward is disinherited when he was supposed to???

Edward is disinherited for being engaged to Lucy, but his brother suffers no consequences. And Edward remian disinherited even after his brother marries Lucy. It always bothered me.

Edward was disineherited when he broke his engagement to Lucy because he was in love with Elinor. His younger brother inherited the estate and the jilted bride........ needless to say his actions were more in tune with his mother's desires.
