I think they both love each other so much, that they went to this toxic phase.

Well...I think Nick believed in it at first, and I think Amy immersed herself to the point of some sort of belief in her own fantasy. I think Nick had a very specific idea of their relationship, at first. I also feel like they both were very selfish (Amy being the most overt) but that Nick's selfishness was mostly harmless until Amy's inherent craziness started to really come out. At the end, I think Nick has some sort of Stockholm Syndrome going on.

I think that they believed in their marriage, but only as far as they understood it. Nick believed in his marriage to Amy but didn't know it was an illusion. Amy believed in her marriage to Nick without realizing he didn't see through the illusion. The reality was different from their beliefs, but for what it's worth I think they genuinely believed in their false reality of a marriage.

I think they both believed in their marriage and they both did what they felt was right to try to make it last. But in the end, it didn't work out the way they wanted it to.

I agree that they believed in the same illusion of marriage but they never really worked toward it. Then they deluded themselves and each other and made themselves fit into the illusion of the marriage before everything fell apart.

No, I don't believe any of them believed in their marriage. They had a very corrupted and twisted relationship. Amy is really crazy!

I think both seem too self absorbed to have been able to invest and believe in their marriage. If neither noticed what each other were hiding then it doesn't seem like they paid enough attention to or cared enough about each other.

No they did not. It was like a pretend play. Amy trying to control and Nick instead of taking a stand, running here and there and using escapism
What is the most special thing i did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.
