The women in the novel are too shallow for our sympathy or admiration A character that can be described as being wholly shallow is Myrtle. We learn that she ‘lay down and cried’ after finding out her husband Wilson ‘borrowed somebody’s best suit to get married in.’ Myrtle is distraught after finding out her husband is not rich nor a ‘gentleman’, as he made little effort on their wedding day. In the broader scheme of things, this should not matter; however Myrtle seems fixated on this and concludes from this one situation that their marriage is doomed.

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.
