All this was compounded with the usual financial and domestic anxieties that accompany the starting of a family.  With the sad alternative of a prematurely destroyed family confronting them, they both unhesitatingly decided on the second course.  In spite of the freeing of sexual mores, the complications arising from living them out had not yet made themselves felt in the public domain; the doctor, the analyst, clergyman and lawyer were available in their varied functions, but rarely resorted to when things went wrong; public sex education as prevention, and self­help psychological groups as therapy, were still in the future.

As Rachel became more aware of the message the dream conveyed from the unconscious recesses of her mind and body, she underwent several changes of emotion.  Then she felt again the grief of maternal deprivation and was disturbed by it.  She now had a grandchild she could cherish and enjoy, without the ties of responsibility, and was living a life well balanced Page 57 between interesting work and domestic partnership, and with more freedom than ever before.  She acknowledged this and was able to redefine the feelings she had had then.

But as Rachel and her male analyst had built up a good relationship in that time, the analysis, suddenly curtailed though it was, helped to set Rachel on a new path.  Because she now recognized the anxiety in his greed and felt less threatened by it and less guilty, she was able to enjoy her body's responses to his, even if she still resented and disliked his mode of approach.  It was imprinted on their bodies, and lingered on as an element of "fight" in their sexual encounters, which was perhaps no bad thing since it united rather than divided them.
