The answer to your question depends upon where you are in reading the story. Ethan's main reason for not acting upon his feelings for Mattie is his wife...... he is a married man. Initially, he acts honorably. As time goes on, Mattie becomes aware of his feelings and doesn't deter them.... she welcomes them.
