In fact, when she finally chooses to enter a romantic relationship, she does so with the hope that her paramour will one day become her husband. And so always tries to create this family unit in advance during the course of their relationship. This quest for her other half in marriage is the main reason why the Matriarch is quick to drop and forget her friends once she gets a boyfriend. And also the reason why she wants her wedding day to be perfect. It is, after all, the most important day of her life. The swearing of vows a sign that she is now one with her husband.
In fact, her husband is so integral to her Universe that she finds it very difficult to continue if her husband is separated from her, even if it is a temporary separation for work tours.
This complete dependence on her husband to provide meaning to her life is the reason why she is constantly on the lookout to protect her marriage from seductresses who might cause her husband to stray. You can see it in the way she deals with her husband Zeus and his tendency to romp in the sack outside of their marriage. The Matriarch lives to be loved and respected by her family.
She feels she is entitled to it because of all the love and attention she bestows on them. She is motivated by this because as a child she constantly saw her father abuse and degrade her mother, and vowed that she will never allow her own husband to treat her that way.
