Man & Superman (Shaw)-Why did Tanner have such an abrupt change of heart in the end?

I didn't see his character transfiguring throughout the play and was shocked when he suddenly decided to marry Ann. It seemed completely out of character and I did not really understand it.

Man and Superman, Shaw.

I would just like to say i found the book very interesting. I found the Revolutionists maxims tremendously entertaining, and the book throughout kept pace. I loved the subversion of heaven and hell, and the women and man relationships. What did everyone else think?
