They married at a young age and is sleeping around with other women. After analyzing what Dmitri has went through and is doing now this seems like an example of love being some type of trap. He loved his wife at a young age and got married. As he grew older he fell out of love with her but is still with her.

In my opinion I believe that the type of love Dmitri has with his wife is nothing but love from the past which died out. It is hard to believe that you are married to someone for so many years but aren’t happy with that person and don’t love…
