Although Emma decides that she loves Leon, she continues to hold fast to her marriage vows and, consequently, becomes frustrated. She consults a priest to discuss her problems and ask for guidance, but he is so busy with parish problems–including unruly children in his catechism class–that Madame Bovary leaves without explaining the purpose of her visit.
