3. What would have happened to Matilda if she had confessed to her friend that she had lost her necklace?

Question:

What would have happened to Matilda if she had confessed to her friend that she had lost her necklace?

Answer:

Truth and honesty would have saved Matilda from her doom. If only she has been courageous enough to confess to her friend the truth of the necklace, she would have come to know that it was a fake one that cost a mere five hundred francs. She would not have spent her husband’s entire inheritance and borrowed eighteen thousand francs to pay for its replacement. In fact, she would have saved herself and her husband from ten long years of crushing poverty, misery and back breaking labour.
