John and Elizabeth still have a very difficult relationship after her discovery of his relationship with Abigail. She is sad and depressed; he feels the need to try to please her, yet she does not respond to anything. He says she keeps a cold house and he feels as if she will never forgive him.

John and Elizabeth's has changed significantly since John's affair. It put a strain on their relationship. John feels guilty about his actions and wishes he had never made them. Elizabeth is depressed and overwhelmed from hearing John did this.
