Frances Marsden is the matriarch of the Marsden family. The family moved into the house formerly owned by the Reynolds family. At first things seemed to be fine between Frances and Ronnie, but she soon told him that she’d had a cancer scare.
A few months later, Frances organized a girls night out for herself and Diane, who she’d also became friends. The night went ahead. The next day Ronnie said he had been to the Malt Shovel, but later Marlon Dingle revealed that Ronnie had been propping up the bar at the Woolie.
Frances confronted Ronnie, and discovered the truth about his affair with Louise. She went to see Louise and revealed that Ronnie had had many affairs before, and she had taken him back for the sake of their children. The affair ended, but Ronnie and Frances still had to work to rebuild their marriage. Things are fine between them at present, but how long until Ronnie strays again?
