She falls in love with one of the underground's members (Leandro) and marries him. Maria Teresa is influenced by her husband, and their involvement in the revolution is a family affair. Minerva, however, doesn't base her decision to join the revolution because she's inspired by a man. Once a huge Trujillo supporter, Minerva finally learns who Trujillo is and turns against him.
