A reader may think that Lindsey is just a strong independent woman who does not have a soft spot to her. But after a while of reading this novel a reader will notice that she is actually very caring. Lindsey falls for her partner Chris Raleigh, but she does not want to tell him because she does not want to hurt him. Lindsey discovers that she has Negli's aplastic anemia, which is fatal so she does not try to get close with him so he will not be hurt when she dies.

Body paragraph worksheet The gender roles in both the pieces increase marital problems for the married couples. In The Yellow Wallpaper, Jane tells her husband that she is sick and she wants to leave, but he doesn’t believe that she is sick. Even though John, her husband, is a physician, he doesn’t understand her feelings and how she feels. She doesn’t want to tell anybody about her husband not believing her, so she feels relief after writing, “You see he does not believe I am sick! And what can one do?”(Gilman 1).Gilman is using gender roles when she says that the husband John doesn’t believe that the narrator is severely sick and she could not do anything to make him believe her.
Matt now has a son, a good wife, and an ordinary life; he still has a good family life without going to university. In contrast with Kate, although she has good education and job, she doesn’t have her own family and in fact, she says, “I had never thought I would really love anyone.” (89) From another perspective, she seems to be the one that is going to have a sad life. Similar with Luke, when he rejects Sally it is due to his responsibility as a caregiver. He is happy with his decision since it is for his family. If Matt chooses to go to university instead and leaves Marie, he will most likely lose his happiness and truly be an emotionless “nerd” and suffers like Kate who does not truly knows the meaning of love.
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.
He lives at the house of the Widow Douglas, who is taking care of him together with her sister, Miss Watson.

John’s biggest downfall in this story is the fact that he is stuck with the unfortunate task of being not only his wife’s lover, but also her doctor. Instead of being a concerned husband and being there for his wife mentally, he took a more clinical attitude to the situation and there for our narrator was left to her own devises. Also John only knows the “pattern” of his wife and does not see the trapped woman with in. John truly care for his wife and is trying everything in his power to help and cure her. Unfortunately the only way he knows how to help her it by treating her as a medical patient or as an object and not as a person who needed love, not just care.
The narrator discloses that it is actually a good thing that she is not caring for the baby. “I never thought of it before, but it is lucky that John kept me here after-all, I can stand it so much easier than a baby, you see.” (10). The reader starts to get a sense that the narrator cannot care for her baby, as her entire world revolves only around the room and the wallpaper that surrounds it. The narrator’s husband does not want her to do anything in the room, not even write in her journal. “There comes John, and I must put this away- he hates to have me write a word.” (4).
