Beth is a psychopath! she has to be. her behavior is clinical narcissism. the bags! the ring! celebrating Howard publicly as some sort of deity! they say psychopaths act the part they feel they need to, to fit in. to seem normal. but if you look close enough they eventually fuck up. because of course they aren't normal. that's why she holds on so tight to the bags. the ring. the incessant Howard is god script she never deviates from. its all a simple minded persons attempt to fit in, to seem sincere. but you see love isn't all one way. and no matter how much you love someone you are going to disagree, fight, say things to piss the other one off, etc... only if you were following a careful script would you never exhibit or act out like a normal person. She's following a script. she's either a beard (a very well compensated one) or she truly is a psychopath playing the part of devoted gaga, over the moon housewife. it's just not a normal scene! I've been around rich people, they fight, argue, love, cry and shit just like us. the only difference is they mostly have a lot of money. that's it. nothing more, nothing less.
