Wynston with Ruth in domestic bliss isn't the agreement and never was, and sex doesn't stand out to her as this one critical thing that she must control when he's away. Coming as she does from a class of people who consider themselves entitled to bang what they want when they want, she recognizes the value of love to go with the sex; she doesn't find herself obsessing over the mere act elsewhere.
I have struggled with writing correspondence between Ruth's parents on the subject, because they must have dealt with the same thing. In the absence of anything very clever to say I've left that aside.
Brain thoughts are happening. I might have more later.
