Character Analysis

Lois is Jack's first wife. They have a great sex life, until – Jack realizes she's a human being and not an object. He also realizes he doesn't know her, and doesn't have a desire to do so. The marriage is a sham in large part because Jack is still head over heels in love with Anne.
