Why does Natalya quarrel with Lomov?What is the result?(The Proposal).
While talking to each other, Lomov and Natalya get into a heated argument about a piece of land. Both argue that it has been in their family for many years. They call each other names and Chubukov too joins in. Instead of proposing to Natalya, Lomov calls her and her family land grabbers. The quarrel continues and Lomov becomes sick so he has to leave in a hurry. When Natalya comes to know from her father that Lomov had come to propose to her, she laments and orders her father to call him back. Lomov comes back and they start talking again but once again they start arguing, this time the cause being their dogs. A severe quarrel ensues with Lomov collapsing, and thus Lomov is unable to propose to Natalya.
