Elizabeth Patterson and the issue of trust.

Elizabeth has gone on record as saying that she sincerely believes that Anthony has trust issues that stem from his first marriage. According to her, Thérèse's infidelity blindsided him and made him feel as if he couldn't trust the promises people made. It might not occur to her that since he'd given up on their marriage when she thought it was still salvageable and only started to cheat when it became too obvious that his promises of eternal fidelity were bullshit, that he might have been crying crocodile tears. Since she's fairly shallow, she took his whining at face value and assumes that he has to be shown that he can trust her. When you combine that with her default negativity, her belief that she'll die alone and unloved, that everyone will abandon her because she's not worth their time, you can readily see that Anthony will have to spend the rest of his life having to console her that he does indeed trust her. In a few years time, he'll have worked out a routine to deal with her easily-triggered guilty conscience. Knowing him, it would probably involve letting her stew in her own juices for a while. At any rate, he and Francie will be treated like royalty by a woman walking on egg-shells.
