In addition, Celie no longer hates Albert. In Letter 74, she called him a "lowdown dog," denounced  him, and decided to leave with Shug. Now, however, both Albert and Celie have been replaced in  Shug's life by youthful Germaine. "Here us is, I thought, two old fools left over from love." They are in  an unplanned union. The husband had a mistress who stole his wife from him, and now that mistress  has left both of them for a younger man. Albert partially understands Celie's feelings of rejection, and  she, in turn, acknowledges his misery. "I don't hate him for two reasons. One, he love Shug. And  two, Shug use to love him." Shug is the magical ingredient that makes the difference for Celie.
