María Antonia and Pepe are the other couple. María Antonia is the daughter of Gonzalo’s first marriage. Pepe is interested in other women. Both Pepe and Gonzalo will fall into Josefina’s trap, the antagonist in the story. María Antonia has a very good relationship with her step-mother Isabel. Both women share the same problem: their husbands are clearly cheating on them. The older endures with solemn dignity but the younger one cannot stand it anymore and gets closer to Manuel, a man that truly appreciates her.
