Juliette and Nathan's argue on p. 129-130. Who did you identify with more in this scene? How is the way that each character handles confrontation illustrative of their personality?

Nathan has a very passive nature. He rolls with the punches and tries to please everyone. I think Juliette was wrong to keep the letter a secret for so long and to have it fester up inside like that. She should have confronted him with it at first and then they could have dealt better with the situation if she wanted to keep her marriage together.

Nathan thinks that if he ignores things they will go away. If he can't see it, it doesn't exist for him. His avoidance of important things makes him irresponsible. Juliette has to take time to think things through, but then she takes action and tries to deal with reality. She ends up being much more responsible.
