wHY IS IT SO THAT JACK DOESNOT WANT TO WORK WITH HIS WIFE AT THE END????????????????
IN WAIT OF A QUICK RESPONSE
PLEASE REPLY SOON EXPERTS
At the end of the story, Jack refrains from speaking, working or touching his wife because he realizes that both of them are equally responsible for the monotony of their life and this never-ending spiral of family life that they are caught in. As he watched his wife labour with utter weariness of the sameness of his days, he felt caught in an ugly middle position. He felt trapped in a cage and also felt his wife's presence in that cage. He could not communicate with her because somewhere he realized that she already knew what he felt about being caged in family pressures and daily duties.
