To anyone looking at the couple, or visiting them in their home, they would consider them the 'perfect' loving couple. By today's standards, Torvald is oppressive, demanding and controllling. Nora is conniving, decietful, oppressed, and angry. Both characters feel locked and trapped into a mold that neither wants or enjoys. Yet, the norms of the time have them stuck in a marriage that is damaging to both of them.
