Many couples end up deciding that the woman and the children will take the males last name, because that it just how it has always been and why change the tradition. Many women find that having the same last name as their husband helps them feel more like a family, and a new name is an important symbol of the journey they are taking together. Personally, when I get married, I will gladly change my last name to whatever my husband happens to be, because following the tradition is important to me. Williamson gave her own experience on how not following tradition can affect everyone in the family when she stated “He’d just delivered the happiest news of his mother’s life - that her first grandchild had been born and followed up with a sucker punch to the heart. The baby was going to have my last name” (69) Williamson’s mother-in-law is woman who
She describes how her own experiences with gay and straight relationships affect her views on marriage, as well as her feelings on what marriage symbolizes. Newman is frequently asked over and over again why she isn’t married to the father of her child whom she lives with. My feelings when she describes what is going on as she is asked lead me to believe she wants to be married. I believe a couple who lives together with children should be married. When Newman says, “I probably cried when the bride kissed her parents” and that she is “eating the entrée I checked off months ago” I feel she doesn’t just like weddings but wants one of her own.
To Janie a marriage is about a mutual and reciprocal fulfillment that should be filled with love. It seems that throughout the whole narrative, Janie is constantly looking for this type of ideal marriage and love and being at one with nature. In her marriage to Logan Killicks she hopes to find this ideal marriage, “She knew now that marriage did not make love. Janie’s first dream was dead, so she became a woman.”(24). Logan Killicks crushes Janie’s child dream and any hope she had for that perfect marriage and love, so with this new realization, Janie knows that she must become a woman and do away with her childish dreams.

Natalie Paba February 5, 2015 ENC 1102 Professor Schwartz The Horse-Dealer’s Daughter When I first began reading this very peculiar love story about Mabel and Jack and how saving her from her death brought their love together, I was left feeling very odd. I couldn’t help but contemplate about why Jack suddenly felt love towards her. It was obvious why she threw herself onto him, but I couldn’t quite pinpoint why the feeling became mutual. After much examination, I came to the conclusion that he must’ve told her he loved her
And the concise statements build anticipation, which is concluded with what the writer wants the reader to accept as a fact; Evan and his two moms are a family. Second, she cites evidence in variety of areas. For example, she writes, "In Madison, Wis., a couple who applied at the Y with their kids for a family membership was turned down because both were women. It's one of those small things that can make you feel small" (Quindlen). She is trying to use her evidence to show how society treats gay.
But if Pattyn pulled up a gun to her father’s face her would tell her he loves her but do you really think he is telling her the truth? I would have to say that “Burned” is one of the best books I have read so far. This book can relate to a lot of teenage girls right now. It explains how Pattyn is a nobody in school and she wants to find love because she is tired of being lonely. But eventually when she is sent to her aunt J’s house she found
She had been adverted to consider the spousal relationship as a responsibility and burgeon and may well have implied that at that time the factor of sensuality was missing on her side. All her relationships were qualified by caution, solicitude, and kindliness. Three years afterwards she wedded her 5th cousin, Franklin Roosevelt, an appropriate fit for a woman of her assort. But Franklin's overly-protective mother shortly set out to broaden her dominance over her recent daughter-in-law. "I was beginning to be an entirely dependent person," Eleanor stated, "someone always to decide everything for me."
The story is mainly broken up into three parts of her development. These three parts chronicle her change from childhood and her childish misconception of a true love until her eventual peace and self-understanding. The beginning of her development is her first marriage to Logan Killicks, and her eventual desertion of him to what she thinks of as a better life. During the exposition, we see her being used by her grandmother as another chance at raising
In The Glass Menagerie, Laura is most appropriate with this theme. Although she never had a true love story, she tremendously seeks one and yearns everyday for a man in her life. In high school, her dream was to be wed to Jim O’Connor and when she finds out he is her “gentleman caller”, she shivers and involuntarily becomes sick. When he kisses her and she believes that she has finally found a man, he uncovers to her that he is engaged and set to be married. Her romance, therefore, was dispersed.
