Jane’s new wealth, due to her uncle’s death, allows Jane to be truly independent, “I am independent, sir, as well as rich: I am my own mistress”. Although Jane attempts to be independent earlier in the novel, it is always impossible due to her economic disadvantage. She strives to have freedom in her relationship with Edward Rochester and through her feminist power gains her some freedom, his economic dominance always hindered her liberty. This idea was expressed by Bronte through slave imagery. Jane was a slave to her profession and class, “governess slavery”, and was discriminated against by Rochester’s wealthy friends.
As the Beatles would say, money cannot buy love. Love cannot be for sale and thus, love is a priceless emotion. The marriage between Daisy and Tom Buchannan in Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby, gives evidence to this fact. Daisy decided to marry Tom due to society views, lifestyle factors, and money stability.

(www.Cliffnotes.com) Although Fitzgerald makes her despite being beautiful and charming, Daisy’s very selfish, shallow and a mean person. Moreover, Daisy truthfully married tom for his money and didn’t care what he did, unless and so long as he could continue to buy her anything she wanted. Daisy also would hope that her child was a girl, so that she’d be like her and survived the way she did “And I hope she’ll be a fool-that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.”. (Pg. 17 Scott Fitzgerald ;) Daisy was implying that the best way a female was to survive in this world was to be attractive and not do anything with her life, and sit back and let money buy her happiness.

Paris’s insincere love does no justice to his case; in fact, it serves to further illuminate the legitimacy of Romeo’s adoration. There are three causes of Paris’s apparent love: social obligation, political and economic advantage, and being in love with the idea of love. As far as the first motive goes, Paris may be obligated to maintain the appearance of love in order to retain social propriety. As a member of a royal family, and the bearer of the title “County,” certain standards of conduct are expected from him. If, after his betrothed dies, he immediately starts wooing another girl, his reputation as a fine and upstanding gentleman will be ruined, and he will be hard-pressed to find a new wife of appropriate status.
Myrtle: Myrtle Wilson is a victim of the “American Dream”. Like Gatsby, she aspired to be important and stand high on the social latter while living a life of glamour and pampering.

Nora and Kristine comparation In the play “A Doll's House” by Henrick Ibsen we find two strong female characters, Kristine Linde and Nora Helmer even though these characters are in reverse roles we can find many similarities between both of them throughout this play. Kristine and Nora marry for money, use Krogstad, and learn a valuable life lesson.

In that time, Kristine's mother passes away, her brothers become self-sufficient, and her husband dies leaving her nothing, no money, no children, "not even any sorrow or grief to live upon" (6-7).
Critic Suzanne Birkett suggest ‘She later marries Edgar and comes to feel that she is imprisoned by society’s rules.’ As although Cathy has made a wise choice in marrying Edgar because ‘He will be rich’, her forbidden love for Heathcliff still hinders her when Heathcliff once again returns in chapter ten. “There’s no need to be frantic” Edgar “crossly” tells Cathy to calm down after she finds Heathcliff has returned. Suzanne Birkett also suggests that ‘Heathcliff feels excluded from the culture’ Northanger Abbey Isabella and Captain Tilney’s
