How to Create an Authentic Nurturer in Fiction
Valeria Black

I’m confused by this bit:

“This distorted perception of herself and her need to earn affection causes the Nurturer to nurture her partner like a child when she does get into a relationship or marries. And is also the reason why she loses all interest in sexual activities once she has a child.

You can see this in Emma Thompson’s character Elinor Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility.”

Elinor’s life after her wedding isn’t really covered in the movie, and very little in the book. I’m not sure how she demonstrates the asexuality and wife-mothering you are referring to.

Like what you read? Give Amber Troska a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
