Chava was selfish and inflexible when it came to the time she spent with her friends. She frequently broke the plans she made with her husband just hours before. And when they were together, they were never really together. Facebook often chaperoned. Her husband was so fed up with her self-indulgent behavior that he left. Chava didn’t realize he was gone until the next morning: a irony that was lost on her as she asked the Internet if anyone knew where he was.
