Eventually allthe sneaking around caught up to them and Lorenzo Daza, Fermina’s father, found out and was outraged with Fermina’s behavior. He decides to move to his in laws house and take her with him. Fermina sends one last letter to Florentino with a lock of hair in it apologizing for what has happened. She goes with her father and eventually comes to terms with her future. She realizes that her love for Florentino was a mistake and was just ignorant young love. Fermina then meets a young wealthy doctor and after some convincing from her father, she decides to marry him. To say the least, Urbino is a very boring man. He follows a list of steps everyday that plans out his life and he never once questions why he does this. He has devoted his life to findinga cure for cholera and this really does consume his life.
