Palmerino, he describes “The third movement of the story clearly illustrates the couple 's problem with conflict and their overall inability to engage each other without evasion” (Palmerino).

As shown by Offred 's statement: "We aren 't supposed to form friendships, loyalties, among one another" (Atwood 353), people were expected to not create new relationships. It made it impossible for her to maintain her previous mental state. If a society does not allow their citizens to socialize, it is clear that there would be no trust in each other. Hence with the lack of human interaction in such a manipulating society, she became unable to trust anyone else fully in the world
Dobson tells the story of a kid whose father is leaving and promises to write, but he never talks to the kid again. Divorce not only hurts the man and woman involved, it also hurts the children.

He says one needs to pray about it before even thinking about marriage.
But I shall not allow you to bring up the children; I dare not trust them to you” (Ibsen).

He even went so far as to chastise his grief stricken wife for crying too much and not accepting it as he did. However, Brown then goes on to report that, in fact, no matter how hard Byrd tried he would never be able to fully succeed in maintaining domestic and political serenity. Byrd and other elite planters lost control when “wives refused to obey their husbands, children flouted their father’s will, and slaves ran away” (Brown, 57). As structured and detailed as they made their regime over their dependents, they could never fully be in control and this left them in a constant dissatisfaction over their
He berates his wife for keeping such a cold and judgeful disposition, as if he is free of qualms. In fact, John was flirting with Abigail in the first act. John reprimands Elizabeth for playing God, when he does the same to the community. What makes John’s vicious and uncalled for assertion even more distasteful, is the fact that he says he should have “roared” Elizabeth down when she first accused him. Again, John seems to forget that he is the transgressor.
So, because she does not feel she can have someone who will understand her and not punish her for what happened, she does not speak.

When her family and the people around her start pulling her down, she does not feel as strong and confident to stand up for herself and to face her so to speak demons. A perfect example of this is “I open up a paper clip and scratch it across the inside of my left wrist.
