The relationship between Henry and Catherine is challenged by two forces, primarily - war and temporary psychosis - both of which represent an unsettled world in which the pair cannot find a safe haven.
Perhaps the clearest dramatization of the challenges on the relationship for these characters is seen in Henry's difficulty in returning to Catherine after being separated from his unit in retreat.
Selfishness is not necessarily an applicable description of a relationship born under duress as this one is.
