“You are a slut!”
Furthermore, he complained,
“You won’t bring me any dowry. Your parents are so poor. I take you in marriage with bad grace.”
Kyoko realized that her marriage was a mistake just before the ceremony. However, she stuck to her social appearance and the sense of losing her virginity. She did marry him as they had planned.
After their marriage, Shuichi kept insulting her. Kyoko tried to control her anger toward him and go on with their married life. He supported her fully and she had no life privation, so she tried to love him.
She said to herself, 'I have to love him. I have to be a devoted wife for him.’
She did, what is called, the duty of a wife for her husband, for him.
Hoping to improve their conjugal relations and eager to have a baby sincerely, she had a baby. It was Saori.
However, in spite of having a baby, their marriage relationship seemed never to be improved and it was still so bad that they were always quarreling with each other, almost everyday.
When they quarreled, Shuichi often called his mother to visit their home. He consulted with his mother on whether he would decide to divorce or keep their marriage intact.
