While still married to Wilson, Myrtle does everything in her power to try and imitate the life she sees Tom and his friends living. She attempts to throw parties, similar to Gatsby, but they are almost all failures that demonstrate how much lower in class then Tom she really is. In fact, it is her lowness in class that is what keeps Tom from forming a real relationship with her. Although Tom tells Myrtle that the reason that they cannot form a solid relationship is that Daisy is catholic, "it's really his wife that is keeping them apart…" everyone, with exception to Myrtle and her sister, knows that is not the real reason. A person of Toms stature would never marry a women from the Valley of Ashes, and Myrtle is too naïve to realize that.
In order to forget who she was, Edith created an alter-ego of herself, and tried to become that alter-ego, she never really knew the difference between what was important, and what wasn't. As the saying goes, blood is thicker than water, but apparently Edith didn't know that saying or what it meant, because she was so set on trying to impress people who didn't matter, that she pushed away her family, the ones who did matter. No matter how hard Edith tried, she could never make her fantasy life a reality. Even when she was beginning to turn her dream into real life, she doubted herself, and began to realize that she was wrong. Edith discovered that what she
Before this line, Jordan remarks that she’s “never seen a girl so mad about her husband,” it’s more like Daisy was mad with worry that her husband was off with some other woman. That’s why she would look “uneasy” when he wasn’t around, because she knew of the possibility. Daisy, entirely aware of her husband’s infidelities does nothing to stop them yet she complains that she is unhappy. She has no right to do so seeing as she had the choice of not marring Tom but
He was never a man to take the blame but rather say that his actions were just reactions of unfortunate events that others caused. Even though he too, along with Daisy, was not loyal to his partner, he never once admitted he was wrong. He would proceed to lollygag with Myrtle and come home to accuse Daisy of her unloyal actions towards him. A man with that much fortitude cannot be happy with whom he is or he would not be accusing anyone of anything.”…and as we drove away Tom was feeling the hot whips of panic. His wife and his mistress, until an hour ago secure and inviolate were slipping precipitately from his control.”(p.119) Tom knows that Daisy only married him for his money and although she has developed feelings for him, he fears that if he leaves her for Myrtle she will turn to Gatsby.
Myrtle believes she's not fit for her social class, considering she's a expansive woman. '"All I kept thinking about, over and over was "You can't live forever; you can't live forever! "'Since Myrtle is quite obviously below the Buchanan’s class (yet another reason she goes for Tom), Fitzgerald (through Nick) ridicules her for insisting that she is above her husband. He didn't have a lot of positive to say about
He needed her to say that she never loved her current husband Tom. His behavior clearly portrayed his conflicting emotions and excessive moodiness. Why would someone become angry or not accept that the one that they loved admits to loving them back? Even though Gatsby is rarely ever alone, from his extravagant parties, to the non-stop company of Klipspringer he is a loner. Mr. Gatsby really does not have any real friends, just people flocking to him to live off of his fortune.
Because they were both blood brothers, they decided that was good enough, and ended up living together with Derek’s mother and sister. At the start it was very hard for Derek and Morso. Derek’s mother did not readily accept morso into her home, nor did she treat him as an equal. She essentially neglect Morso and made it so much harder for him to settle in. She was very rude to him and would not even speak to him.
She did not find that a marriage service generated love; she did not enable her husband to recapture his youth through hers; nor could she compensate for that by running his home in the manner of an experienced housekeeper.” This quote illustrates that Elias Strorm was very cruel to her that she died after her second child was born. She was a beautiful, young woman who Elias turned into a very dull person. She always wanted him to be happy and be a good person, but that did not happen, he was just unfair and unpleasant to everyone. To conclude Elias Strorm’s wife is a good supporter of her husband as well as Emily Strorm. The role of women does demonstrate bystanders and supporters of their husbands and family member.
She married Roger out of social and economic necessity. When she commits adultrey, she conceals his identity from Dimmesdale. Roger chillingworth visits hester while she is in prison and they both discuss to eachother that their marriage never worked out. Hester says, " I have greatly wronged thee!",(72). Hester is the least sinful because she only committed adultrey and that she never told Arthur chillingworth was her husband.
Either she was too weak to figure out her situation, or a lifetime of having everything handed to her made her simply not want to. Tom and Daisy left the very next day. And through how a stressed Daisy ran over Tom's mistress, Myrtle, causing her husband, George Wilson, to shoot Gatsby out of grief and confusion, it caused his death too. It still wouldn't have mattered if he hadn't died-Daisy and Tom still would've left. His dream of reliving the past was all he really had.
