Question and answer
The second paragraph suggests that the Kernan’s marriage is characterized primarily by: A. Mr. Kernan’s violent behavior towards his wife. B. Mrs. Kernan’s patience with her husband. C. Mr.
Kernan’s fondness for his wife’s beef tea. D. Mr. Kernan’s willingness to go to the store for his wife
The second paragraph suggests that the Kernan’s marriage is characterized primarily by: B. Mrs. Kernan’s patience with her husband.. [ The key sentence in the paragraph that suggests B is the correct answer is the third one (lines 18–20): “She accepted his frequent intemperance as part of the climate, healed him dutifully whenever he was sick and always tried to make him eat a breakfast.” Words
such as “accepted” and “dutifully” don’t suggest that Mrs. Kernan takes care of her husband because she thinks it’s fun; rather, these words suggest a patient resignation to her life and duties. So you can safely choose B as the correct answer. ]

Weegy: In what story is this? i need to know to be able to provide you the best answer. Thank you. User: After three weeks she had found a wife’s life irksome and, later on, when she was beginning to find it unbearable, she had become a mother. The part of mother presented to her no insuperable difficulties and for twenty-five years she had kept house shrewdly for her husband. Her two eldest sons were launched. One was in a draper’s shop in Glasgow and the other was clerk to a tea-merchant in Belfast. They were good sons, wrote regularly and sometimes sent home money. The other children were still at school. Mr. Kernan sent a letter to his office next day and remained in bed. She made beef-tea for him and scolded him roundly. She accepted his frequent intemperance as part of the climate, healed him dutifully whenever he was sick and always tried to make him eat a breakfast. There were worse husbands. He had never been violent since the boys had grown up, and she knew that he would walk to the end of Thomas Street and back again to book even a small order Weegy: Can you please clarify your question?
