It's exactly that! I don't know why, but I have the feeling Ennis's loneliness is deeper than Jack's; maybe because Jack is more open, and try to establish relations with the others, and Ennis doesn't.

I think you are very right. Jack is simply a lot better adjusted person, a far more resiliant person, for all Ennis' image of 'stoic strength'. It's Jack who kept the relationship going, continuing to support Ennis throughout the years. If Jack had only been interested in looking out for his own interests, he ould have left Ennis early on and found someone who would join him in his vision for a shared life. But he stuck with Ennis at the expense of his own long-term happiness.

This sounds like I am down on Ennis, I'm not. He's one of my favourite, more cherishable screen characters ever. I LOVE him. But he really is a very difficult man, demanding a high outlay of psychic and emotional energy. Any lover of his, apart from the sex, is bound to feel he is carrying a heavy load, being in a relationship with him.
