I've always felt the biggest conflict in Chapter Six to be the perception of marriage. Janie's marriage is not the equal partnership she desired, her husband doesn't treat her in the same way as he did during their courtship. He beats her because he wants her subservience, but he really isn't a bad guy, he's the man he was raised to be. It's difficult to package the conflict because there were so many compartments and baggage brought into the marriage by each of them.
