The detailed summary of the chapter is available on our website. Kindly go through it.

  • The chapter is about affluent families seeking matrimonial alliance to increase their wealth and states.
  • Such relationships are not based on love and respect but make economic sense.
The main characters of the chapter and their related details  are as follows:-
  • Lomov is a young affluent man who wants to get married to Natalya. He doesn't love Natalya but decides to marry her because she's a suitable match. He becomes involved in silly arguments with Natalya and Chubukov about the ownership of Oxen Meadows and dogs.
  • Natalya is a strong-willed woman who is more effective than Lomov in speaking her mind. However, she also is hypocritical in maintaining an appearance of superiority. She is concerned about being a potential if not actual spinster and, thus, desperately wants to marry Lomov.
  • Chubukov sees marriage in a mercenary way, referring to Lomov's proposal as a merchant buying goods. For him, the match is advantageous and whether the pair really love each other probably doesn't matter much. Despite his eagerness for the marriage to happen, Chubukov places greater value on maintaining his superiority.
