She follows it because she is now programmed to believe this is the way of life and in turn she has become extremely tentative. She was raised to believe that you needed a husband to take care of you, although she personally believed she would do fine without a husband. She struggles with this because as I stated earlier, she did not want to be the average woman that relied on a man for her every need, but as time passed she became exactly that.

Knowing that he could have been less obstinate and changed his assessment of power would have prevented Creon's son and wife from dying the way they did.
