Yes, agree with you about putting it in perspective. That made this more than just an article about the death of a goodlooking actor.

he was hoping to hear that Ennis had some other options, *because* Jack would feel less guilty when he told Ennis that he was going to enter into a real, living-together relationship before it was too late. But he never does tell Ennis, and Ennis knows nothing about it until he hears it out of the mouth of Jack's father, after Jack is dead.
I have only seen the film once and never read the story so I may be wrong but my interpretation of this was never that he was hoping that Ennis had someone else so he would feel less guilty. The way I saw it Ennis had disppointed him again and again and so he wasn't feeling guilty at all - sad maybe but not guilty. I think it was more that he hoped that Ennis would surprise him and choose him or offer hope that he would choose to be with him one day.

But as I said, only saw it once so I might remember it wrong.

I actually think that's probably a better assessment of the situation from Jack's POV, Frodosweetstuff. Thanks for taking the time to articulate it. You might only have seen it once, but you were paying keen attention. :)
