Misako is very considerate of Kaname and his feelings even if that means bottling up her own troubles and keeping it to herself. His ideal of a woman is very much like a kid, wanting something that no one has or can be. Throughout the novel, Kaname never explicitly showed any consideration toward Misako.
And instead of caring for Misako, Kaname only shows his passive character. His hope for Misako to find another man is a way Kaname can push the blame onto Misako for ruining the marriage instead of admitting his own faults. Kaname dragged out a failing marriage even though he knew from the beginning he wanted to get out.
For the years they have been married, Kaname has only thought of ideas of ending the marriage and strung along Misako, making her suffer and wait for the time her husband will finally learn to love her. Despite their personal problems, they try hard not to show it towards each other as a sign of respect and consideration. Kaname care and consideration is simply a front to hide his own selfishness and self-absorbance whereas Misako sincerely cares about Kaname. In comparison to Kaname who never cared about Misako, Misako has always wanted Kaname to love her and by doing so she would have been satisfied with their marriage.

But at the heart of their arrangement lies a sadness that impels Kaname to take refuge in the past, in the serene rituals of the classical puppet theater--and in a growing fixation with his father-in-law's mistress.
Some Prefer Nettles is an ethereally suggestive, psychologically complex exploration of the crisis every culture faces as it hurtles headfirst into modernity.
