I believe that when they first got married there was some kind of love in their relationship, but when they realized they could not conceive a child Don Elias blamed his wife.

She did not find that a marriage service generated love; she did not enable her husband to recapture his youth through hers; nor could she compensate for that by running his home in the manner of an experienced housekeeper.” This quote illustrates that Elias Strorm was very cruel to her that she died after her second child was born. She was a beautiful, young woman who Elias turned into a very dull person. She always wanted him to be happy and be a good person, but that did not happen, he was just unfair and unpleasant to everyone. To conclude Elias Strorm’s wife is a good supporter of her husband as well as Emily Strorm. The role of women does demonstrate bystanders and supporters of their husbands and family member.
Miller portrays the start of her vengeful needs through an intimate love and hate scene between the two characters, resulting in Proctor disowning their previous relationship: “Abby, I [Proctor] may think of you softly from time to time, but I will cut off my own hand before I’ll ever reach for you again… we never touched, Abby.” Proctor rejects any attempted reconnections with Abigail, implying he is committed to his wife, Elizabeth. This honesty from Proctor, whom she revered and adored, pains her in ways she cannot comprehend, leaving her cold and merciless as she attempts to shield herself from the unbearable scars Proctor left her. Miller’s use of “cut of my own hand” reveals Proctor’s emotions during the scene: exhaustive and slightly guilty. However, he feels frightened by Abigail intense pressure to make him hers, and

Here, Kingshaw’s mother is trying to treat both the boys with equal respect.“I shall not make a favourite of my own child”, which is conveyed to the reader constantly as throughout the novel as her respect for her own child declines as her feelings for Mr Hooper increases . Hooper’s hatred for his own Mother peaks when he thinks to himself “He wished she were dead instead of his father” The phrase, “wish she were dead” conveys the fact that Kingshaw’s hatred for her is an extreme one, this is because he feels that he has been forgotten in place of Mr Hooper and Hooper . Also, the fact that he wants her to be replaced by his father, a person who he has never thoroughly met emphasises that he hates his mother who is suppose to be loving and caring more than anyone he has known. A point that is later made when in his mind Kingshaw exclaims, “he hated her more than Hooper now”. This exaggerates his hate for his mother even more as Hooper is Kingshaw’s worst enemy, this suggests that Kingshaw’s worst relationship is with his mother, potentially implying she is the reason for his death.
