She was not loved, except by the house keeper; therefor Jane grew up desiring love and being included, and whenever she got the chance to play a vital role into someone 's life that she cared about, she made sure to latch on to it. We see a proof of this whenever Jane is hated at Lowood and is shunned, Jane said "If others don 't love me, I would rather die than live- I cannot bear to be solitary
To the woman, this may seem like the action of a heartless person. What she does not realize is that it may be her husband’s way of expressing love for his son. It leads her to think that death brings out the worst in people - not only was her marriage failing but she also realized many more differences between her and the man.

Both sisters now in trouble and are said to be put to death. Antigone in the views of some readers may be the less loyal sister for putting Ismene in the situation to go against the law and to go against her beliefs.

Antigone's loyalty became questionable as she let her sister get in trouble for something she didn’t want any part in.
After realizing that her husband had known about their affair all along, and that he was happy to hear about Daru’s arrest, she decided to leave him as well. “I made up my mind. I decided that I couldn’t stay in this house any longer, that I needed to abandon my family to save myself,” she explained (242). In doing so, she decided to leave her son behind as well, as she believed that he would be better off without a mother, rather than having an emotionally distant mother like her.
