Due to his mother’s stern moral beliefs, he does not have much interest in sexual relations and has negative views on it. The third problem is Dunstan’s fear of being manipulated in a relationship because, of his mothers firm control over his father. Thus due to the hostile childhood his mother creates, Dunstan can never form a successful relationship in adulthood and this leads to a life of loneliness. Having trust is a major aspect in keeping a continuous relationship. Being trustful though, is a characteristic Dunstan Ramsay lacks and this results in weakened relationships.
Through his own narrative, Darl is seen as very observant and perceptual. Through the rest of his family’s narratives, he is an outcast; the black sheep of the family. When all this comes together it creates a perfect storm so to speak, thus setting Darl up for disaster, as if he never had a chance to begin with. “In Defense of Darl’s Sanity”, the author states that, “a majority of Darl’s family doesn’t even like him”(“Defense of Darl”). I think this is because his family, especially his siblings Dewey Dell and Jewel, truly do not understand Darl’s positive intentions.

Edna’s husband, Leonce, often noted “…her habitual neglect of the children” (Chopin 7). Chopin uses the words “habitual neglect” to intensify how Leonce felt toward Edna’s attitudes for their children. Leonce was not pleased with Edna’s lack of care and motherly abilities. Through his diction, it is evident that he senses a change in Edna. Furthermore, Leonce “thought it very discouraging that his wife, who was the sole object of his existence, evinced so little interest in things which concerned him, and valued so little his conversation” (Chopin 6).

How does Martin portray the character of Manon and her attitudes up until the time of her Mother’s death? In the opening pages, Manon repeatedly refers to her husband as “him”, which is shown in the 3rd person pronoun which gives the impression that he has no respect and she has no respect for him, therefore he has not been given a name. This shows that Manon has a negative attitude towards her husband as she believes he does not deserve a name as he is unworthy due to the treatment he has given Manon. As a result, this leads people to believe that there is no love between Manon and her husband because if he was given a name it would show a loving connection. Therefore, I believe Manon hates her husband.

After one conversation with his mother, he understands that only lucky people have money. So, he decides that he is the lucky one and asserted to his mother that God told him about this.
