The Crucible Act 2

John says, “The promise that a stallion gives a mare I gave [Abigail],” yet Elizabeth knows that “there is a promise made in any bed.” What does Elizabeth understand about young women like Abigail that John does not?

Elizabeth understands that young women equate the act with love. She believes John loves her..... not that he simply desired her.
