Just as the lovers come out and admit their love for each other and Masha manages to get her man to marry her the problems start.
They move in with the mother-in-law but it is the boredom and the way she is treated like a girl that drives Masha crazy and makes her demand a trip to the capital. But once in St Petersburg the boredom moves to her husband along with jealousy.
A relationship that was meant to be one of extreme happiness is on a knife edge and quite possibly on the brink of falling apart.
Last bit tomorrow...
