At first he gets mad easily over them, as is shown while the whole party is in the attic and he feels like throwing all of the Christian materials away; however he later comes to accept them because he realizes deep down inside how much they mean to his wife. Since he truly loves his wife he will not get rid of them because they make her happy. Happiness sometimes comes at a price which he becomes willing to pay for her. So as his true love comes out for her it is shown that although the artifacts made him mad or aggravated in the beginning, in the end they become responsible for making things work out for the better."
