I can't say what Amy believed at the start of their marriage. She was so crazy that it's difficult to know what her twisted motivations were. She was a real piece of work and most people were ten steps behind her, including her parents.
I agree with this. Its a bit surprising her parents weren't aware, or maybe they were and that's why they wrote their series.

No, in fact, I feel like they both totally used each other and for different reasons.
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.

I definitely think they believed in it! I believe that they were fake with themselves and each other, and they created their relationship based on unrealistic fantasies and ideals that they were both 100% committed to. If Nick wouldn't have lost his job, there may have never been any issues between them. Unfortunately, their circumstances didn't allow them to continue their facade, and I believe they became aware of how fake their love really was.
