For Fantine, the only thing that mattered to her in her life was her daughter's well-being - nothing more. It was selfless love of the highest kind.
The musical completely butchers Éponine's character, if you ask me. In the Brick, she did have the attitude of "if I can't have Marius, even Cosette cannot have him" - complete stalker behaviour. Why did Boublil & Schoenberg butcher her character so much? No idea.
Fortunately, the movie remedied this situation by taking her out of the Epilogue, and putting in the Bishop - a man who ACTUALLY made a big difference to Valjean's life.
