In some relationships between couples things may not go according to plan There are stones in their paths that do not allow them to continue on as a couple In How Green Was My Valley by Richard Llwellyn characters are unable to express their true feelings for each other Mr Gruffydd and Owen do not follow the real desires of their hearts because their pride gets in the way this decision ends up hurting not only them but also destroying Angharad and Marged the women they love Mr Gruffydd and Owen deny their true feelings because they let their ego interfere For example when talking to Bronwen about Marged Owen tells her that he is not in love with Marged after everybody has a hand in the courting p 94 Owen wants his relationship to be kept a secret but Margeds father sees them kissing He lets his pride get in the way of how he truly feels and he can not continue to love Marged anymore In addition after Margeds father finds them making out Owen realizes that he will never forget that as long as he is living p 91 and later on Owen could not be found that night p 91 After being tortured by his brothers Owen is scarred for life with a memory that will never go away Owen has to run away from his problems because he could not stand the embarrassment Like Owen Mr Gruffydd also allows his self-respect to get in the way for example when Huw and Bronwen are talking about Mr Gruffydds problem Bronwen says Mr Gruffydds trouble is conscience Angharad is going on for eighteen He is near to forty And a poor man to the end of his days p 263 Mr Gruffydd is letting his age difference get in the way of falling in love with Angharad Even Bron thinks his working conditions will not be enough to support Angharad and himself
