- "He was so obsessed with the revolution he spent all our money on it. I hardly got the attention I deserved. I suppose he died how he wanted. A martyr."
- ―Simonne Evrard on her husband, 1793.[src]
Marat's strong dedication to revolutionary politics meant that he spent all of his family's funds on supporting the revolution, and he gave Simonne little attention as a husband. She wrote a letter to him while he hid from his enemies in the Paris sewers, pleading with him to return home. When Marat was assassinated in July 1793, Arno Dorian investigated the killing. On questioning Simonne, he noted that she seemed unaffected by the death of her husband.
