Urbino’s function in the novel is to contrast with Florentino Ariza and his archaic and boldly romantic love. Leggete prima il libro e poi guardate il film: I pretty much skimmed a good portion of the last half, because.

Meanwhile, Fermina and Urbino vdemea old together, going through happy years and unhappy ones and experiencing all the reality of marriage. She did love him. Maybe they know how to rationalize this as “love”?

This is a non-issue. Butnever Love. What’s left is this horrid description of some hplerei nimrod who can’t just get over a dumb crush.
