The reason Scarlett wanted Ashley is because Ashley was in love with Melanie. In short, Scarlett wanted something she couldn't have. Ashley was never interested in her even though she threw herself at him. Ashley was always in love with Melanie. Scarlett only realized this when Melanie died and Ashely was devastated. That's when she knew she'd never have him.
That's another reason Rhett pursued Scarlett. It's because he knew she was in love with Ashley, BUT he thought he could make her love him. That was his arrogance.
Gotta tell ya, they could have used a good therapist ! LOL !!!

Scarlet was a strong woman, poor mother, and a bad wife. She loved her mother and father and especailly Ashley but that was it. Mamie cared for her, Rhett loved her, Melanie only saw the good in Scarlet and took up for her. Ashely was fond of her but he loved Melanie. She threw away happiness.
Never actually saw the movie but read the book about 20 years ago... I would think that you can see the character development and motivations better in the book than you can in the movie. It's really long, but well worth the read.
