Freedom and Confinement Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

"Id rather die 20 times over than marry another of their sex of course hed never find another woman like me to put up with him the way I do" (18.744).

In "Penelope," Molly thinks about how she would never marry again if given the opportunity. In what ways is Molly confined by their marriage? Is it through any overt fault of Bloom's? In what ways is she liberated by thinking that she is the only one that disapproves of their marriage and that Bloom would never leave her?
