In the story the Count of Monte Cristo, both Madame Danglars and Mercedes have become publicly humiliated and are husbandless. However, they serve as extreme contrast, as Madame Danglars played a large part in the ruin of her husband and feels as fate has been unfair to her, while Mercedes had nothing to do with her husband's misfortune but cares very little, in fact abandoning the wealth she'd gained from it in favor of her own honor.

Madame Danglars and Mercedes act as great foils for each other because they have two very different approaches to a very similar problem. Both had been affected by the ruin of their husbands. Madame Danglars had actually played a part in her misfortune, but felt wronged. Mercedes, on the other hand, had nothing to do with her problems, yet felt no self-pity or anguish for the loss.
