However, he is quite stubborn and the lack of communication in their relationship is very unhealthy. His wife “[doesn’t] feel as if it [is] worth while to turn [her] hand over for anything” (Charlotte Perkins Gilman 4). He refuses to hear her out on anything, and makes all the decisions for her. Whether it is which room she is to stay in, or whom she is allowed to visit, John takes away every choice she has and every decision she may have made. He does love her, but because of the hierarchy in their household, and because he is a physician, he firmly believes that he is right in everything he is doing.
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.
First of all, John handles everything to an extent but he doesn’t solve the problem at hand. He tends to run away from it. For example, when the narrator asks, “why the house had stood so long untenanted,” he just laughs at her and doesn’t even investigate about it, which proves that he just let it go and does nothing about it. And that is what he does throughout the whole story. Also he “scoffs openly at any talk.” This means that he doesn’t talk about his problems and he would prefer to keep things bottled up then to express how he is really feeling.
John is a physician and believes that his wife is only suffering from a “temporary nervous depression-a slight hysterical tendency” (70) and due to this condition she should obtain plenty of rest, air and exercise but absolutely no work. The narrator is a writer that is forbidden to write because her husband believes that any form of society or stimulus could cause her condition to deteriorate further. As the story continue you beginning to understand the relationship between the narrator and her husband John. John seems to be very controlling and throughout the story berates his wife, while treating her like a small child that needs caring for. Every attempt that is made by the narrator to express her concerns is met with opposition or disregard.
The main character suffers from depression. Her husband wants to help with her illness, but only helps make her worse by preventing her from enjoying what she loves the most. "There comes John, and I must put this away, he hates to have me write words. "(Gilman,Charlotte) John does not think that his wife should write, rather he wants her to rest everyday in the room with yellow wallpaper. The wallpaper however begins to take a toll on the woman’s life.
Calvin and his son Conrad find is hard or next to impossible to communicate with Beth. If Beth had agreed to seek professional help by a third-party, which in the movie she had no intentions would have helped her in many ways. Beth was very unwilling to share her feelings with anyone. For this reason Beth found it very hard to open up to anyone in comfort, which is caused by her denial and suppression. To conclude, it is
Like many of us, McCandless had grown tired and frustrated with everyday life in modern society, and had longed to get away and live a more meaningful existence; however, the reason many of us do not walk away is because we have responsibilities, we have a duty to the people that love us. Unfortunately McCandless was too selfish to ever realize that he can’t just live for himself. Instead Chris decided to abandon his family and leave them to deal with the heartache and pain of his departure; left to forever question and wonder where he was and whether or not he was safe. “I don’t know how I’ll ever get over it. I wasn’t dreaming.
In my opinion he is not showing any emotions towards her but it all seems calm however is not what it seems. When Stephen hears Isabelle and Azaire, Isabelle is pleading towards him showing she has no impact over him and he can do whatever he likes as when he was beating her up. 'It turned into a gasp which, because of its sudden move into a higher register, was clearly one of pain.' Stephen can tell an unease between their relationship and knows something is not right about their relationship therefore questions Isabelle about it after he has heard what just happened. She is desperate and you can tell she is very upset.
Baba never discusses her with Amir, and he doesn’t appreciate the qualities she passed down to her son “That was how I escaped my father's aloofness, in my dead mother's books” this being a disgrace to baba as he wished for a masculine son "Real men didn't read poetry-and God forbid they should ever write it!” this effectively showing baba’s disinterest in Amir as Baba believes a real man is interested in sports. One interpretation to explain his lack of conformity to the ideal model of manhood could be due to his mother as she feminizes him even though she's almost
Some may say Hester should have been smarter and less impulsive, she could have found the way to get information about her husband by contacting the right people. Although Hester could have been more concerned for her husband, she had no way to contact Chillingworth and she couldn’t do much since she didn’t have an address to send a letter to or to check personally. Marriages in this time period were mostly arranged because women could not work and they needed to be sustained economically by a man. This was the case for Hester Prynne and Chillingworth. Hester clearly stated she never loved him: “thou knowest that I was frank with thee.
