Throughout the novel Ethan is continuously drawn to Mattie, as she was much more attractive and friendly than Zeena. Ordered by Zeena to send Mattie away Ethan has to make a decision; either run away with the woman he loves or stay with the miserable woman he married. Torn between the two without money and the dreadful guilt to leave the sickly woman he is bound to by vows; on the night of Mattie departure they decided to kill themselves but the plan went terribly wrong, as Mattie became cripple and Zeena “miraculously” recovered and took care of them both.

When Ethan and Zeena had first met, "Zeena's volubility was music to his ears" (qtd.in Lauer 29), after his father’s death, his mother fell sick and silent for years.
