Though Nora projects unconditional love, Torvald takes refuge in pretences and hypocrisy for survival in society and at home. Nora, who appears as a child-like, silly woman, in reality, is much more, matured and intelligent, whereas Torvald, who appears to be strong and benign, in reality, is an egotistical man, who cares only about himself.

This brings difficulty to her familiar relationships and friendships due to her rejection of living according to her role as a mother and a wife.

I can't make it more clear; it's only something which I am beginning to comprehend, which is revealing itself to me."
