In desperate need to feel loved Crane sets out on a mission to be married. She later marries a man that she’s not really interested in only marrying him to gain popularity. While reading the story I could feel the pain and imagine how hard she struggled to feel accepted. As being the only darkest in my family I often struggle to be notice and accepted too. This novel to me is altogether depressing and very hard to read without crying.

This differs from how Lily acts because Lily relies on others to help make her happy.

Human emotions include love and compassion, which is still not simple enough for Montag’s generation. When Montag thought about Mildred dying he knew he would not cry because, “it would be the dying of an unknown, a street face, a newspaper image”(Bradbury, p. 44). Marriage is supposed to be about love, but he doesn’t even know what that is. They are only married because that is what everyone else does. Mildred’s friends have been remarried more than four times.
Anna was drowning in the misery of her marriage and in guilt from seeing another man on one side but is happy to be with Gurov. Anna states that, “for years now they had not been comfortable together, in their intimacy and at a distance… It was something they might have known once” (Oates 449), which explains that her unhappy marriage forced her to search for a person to fulfill the lost emotions at home. Committing adultery is more of an emotional fulfillment that it is a physical need but it derives from the want to find someone who means something more. If couple who married shows that they do not love each other mutually, it should be acceptable for the two to be involved in an affair because neither of them truly gets hurt, providing act of cheating to be meaningless and
“The inexhaustible charm that rose and fell”(120) in Daisy's voice captured everyone she met, and held them close to her heart. She had thought she loved Gatsby with all her heart, but she knew things had to change. After the murder of Myrtle, she had to choose between the man she loved, and the man she would come to love. She had to forget about true love and think about her child's need for her father. Tom said he loved Daisy, but “his sturdy physical egotism no longer nourished his peremptory heart.”(20).
