Though Ger fit the image of Kat, she still was not pleased and she longed for someone else, she thought to herself, “Gerald is what [I’ve] been missing… Not Ger, not the one [I’ve] made in [my] own image.”(41) She yearned for the same Gerald she originally changed into her image. Though Kat tries to cover it up, it reveals that she truly does not like her own identity as she detested Ger’s image, who is exactly a reflection of herself. Kat’s lack of knowledge about who she is as a person altered her interests and affected the relationships around her.

Mrs. Diminishes and Mrs. Sound got to be annoyed by the remarks since it was something they could identify with. Each wedded lady amid this period was bound by social assumptions with respect to their obligations around the house.
