Dear Student, 
Given below are few points that will help you frame a complete answer.
  • Mutual trust and respect are the most vital qualities that are required for the growth and strong foundation of any relationship.
  • We see this in the relationship between John Hallock and Lavinia.
  • In the story, John Hallock hides the notions and ideas that he has about Helen, to Lavinia.
  • This leads to misunderstandings. However, when the truth is revealed, Lavinia is willing to accept her husband.
  • Just like in any family, there is turbulence and problems in the life of John and Lavinia. These are necessary, however, in order to strengthen the bond between them.
  • Things start falling in place when all the characters start  respecting the feelings of the others.
  • When they open up with each other, the problems are resolved. The story teaches us the importance of communication and expression of thoughts in the mind.
  • Thus, the story teaches the reader that respect, communication and trust are significant pillars on which any relationship rests.
