Money and Divorce

  • Peter Kuch


While Bloom retains and at various times revives happy memories of his life with Molly, it is Molly’s thoughts about their finances and about her husband’s checkered history of employment that furnish insights into why their marriage is in trouble. While it is certain that Molly feels financially insecure and is chafing under Bloom’s checks on her spending, and while it is certain that Bloom has provided gilt-edged security for Milly rather than Molly, it is also certain that Molly’s “suppose I divorced him” and Bloom’s “divorce, not now” are bound up with sex and money. Talking to Stephen about Parnell, Bloom reveals his knowledge of the King’s Proctor and the progression from decree nisi to decree absolute specific to the English jurisdiction.
