The one good thing about Jack and Kate’s obstinate natures was that it created a situation that was ripe for sharp, witty bantering. Once she is safely ensconced in Jack’s country home, she energetically throws herself into righting not only Jack’s household but Jack himself.
And of course the meanness gqllant because he loved the h but was unable to express his love since he knew what was good for her and wanted to make her hate him.
