The one thing ceasing it to be a happy home and life, Madison feels, is a child of their own. She desperately wants a baby but Michael doesn’t share Madison’s enthusiasm. Although they have been trying, the Roland couple have been unsuccessful.
Continuing to remain optimistic, Madison leaves her career to devote herself to being a wife.
