As Edna journeys in her awakening, she strives to find meaning for herself as Edna, not her children's mother.

Nick and Honey keep a seemingly perfect house, but their inability to have children and their conflicting opinions on the topic as a whole demonstrate the deep divide between societal expectations and human expectations, while George and Martha’s creation of an imaginary child shows the societal pressure to raise a child and the comfort that it brings.
