I think part of the reason Nora could not stay in the reality in which she married Ash was that she felt like it was not truly hers and that she hadn’t earned it. I think she may have also felt guilty because she knew she could have made that life for herself in her root life if she had only made a few decisions differently. I think that realization may have ultimately been the purpose of her experience in the Midnight Library, which led her to understand that her root life was still full of possibilities.
