While dormant, this conflict has been raging since the beginning of her marriage, as demonstrated by a poignant scene from chapter three in which the reader is first introduced to Mrs. Pontellier’s marital dissatisfaction. After spending an ungrateful amount of time with her husband for the first time all day, Edna reacts bitterly; “The tears came so fast to Mrs. Pontellier’s eyes that the damp sleeve of her peignoir no longer served to dry them... She could not have told why she was crying. Such experiences as the foregoing were not uncommon in her married life.” (Chopin 6) At this point, her life has been spent in servitude to the “outward existence which conforms.” She performs the duties obligated to her by virtue of marriage; rearing children and caring for a home. This oppressive existence brings no satisfaction to Edna, and ironically, she is more alone in marriage than she has been at any point in her life. This despondence will cause her to seek fulfillment from other sources, leaving her vulnerable to the advances of Robert Lebrun.
