||Vera and Tom get married after a drunken party with their friends Betty and Jerry, who also elope. The next day, Tom blames Vera for tricking him into marriage. He repeats this constantly and complains about Vera's housekeeping, cooking, etc. Tom also gets drunk and physically abuses Vera. When Tom's fired, Vera gets a job to support them. She performs well and is respected: "they treated me like a human, not like the slave and combination servant that you've treated me!" She leaves Tom. "I've freed myself of the brute's domination!"
