On the oppose side of the marital spectrum, Zeena regularly professes her hypochondria to her husband. However, in response to the sledding accident, she “seemed to be raised right up just when the call came to her” (Wharton 131).

It also shows how money really is, or can be the basis of many relationships, which is still true today. Throughout this play, it seems as if one can’t really choose which character is the antagonist and which deserves to be the protagonist, although each character shows qualities of both. It can be argued that Nora is the antagonist because she is constantly lying to her husband, Torvald, and doing things he tells her not to behind her back. Also, it becomes clear that most of the things she does, for instance, anytime Nora shows affection it is only to receive some kind of payment.
