As the love between Hester and Dimmesdale results in the breaking of Puritan standards, Chihiro and Haku’s love also breaks the customs in the bathhouse. Bellingham sets the regulations for Puritan society, but ignores the regulations by having immense wealth, while Yubaba as the head of the bathhouse is usually concerned with money, overlooks everything else when her baby is in danger.
