For one, Curley's wife is the only woman on the ranch and the only prominent female character in the entire novel. Also, Curley is very possessive of her, as if she is something that belongs to him but that everyone else desires. Curley wants the inferior men on the ranch to know that he has something valuable that they are prohibited from. Curley prohibits her from socializing with the other men, and thus she has no companions. Because she is so lonely she is always seeking attention and putting great effort into her looks.
Further, she does little to hide these flirtations from her husband, though they’re likely to infuriate him and make him feel even smaller. As the only woman on the ranch, Curley’s wife is lonely and sad; something her marriage to Curley only makes worse. She reveals throughout the course of the story that she is unhappy in her marriage because her husband seems to care little for her, and is really more interested in talking about himself than anything else. She is constantly searching for her husband, “I’m looking for Curley.” Although, this may be just an excuse to mingle with the men and have some company. Curley’s wife barges in on Lennie, Crooks, and Candy in Chapter Four.
The fact that she had no child may infer that she probably felt unfulfilled as a woman. Therefore, she could not enjoy completely happiness with her husband even though this kind man did nothing but nice, showed nothing but love to his wife. Indeed, her married life was full of pressure and constraint that many readers doubt that her heart trouble might be the result of her suffering. There are so many reasons accounted for her unhappy married life including her fault when she caged all her thought inside or her husband insensitiveness, etc. and the social expectations at that time too.
Character: Sara Fitzgerald Her character had more debilitative actions than facilitative, in my opinion. Her desperate actions towards everyone in her family were simply out of love, mainly for Kate, but because of this, her family almost got destroyed. She neglected her other children and fought with her husband. She has become overprotective towards Kate, not knowing what might happen to others, not considering Anna’s feelings towards being a donor of ‘spare parts’ for Kate, or not even hearing out what Kate herself had in mind. All of these are because she wanted to keep Kate alive despite the fact that it was impossible.
Because Eliza is jealous of Georgiana, she prevents Georgiana from eloping with the man she loves. And that’s why they hate each other. Both of Misses Reed are selfish, they don't care about their mother's illness or death. While Mrs. Reed is suffering from her deteriorating health, Georgiana feels bored and wishes if her aunt who lives in London invites her to their home, and Eliza is busy in planning for her life after her mother's death. When Mrs. Reed dies Jane says, "Neither of us had dropped a tear."
Through her physical appearance and her own actions, Candy's description of Curley's Wife seems accurate after her first appearance in the text. Curley’s wife has no name and is initially seen as the possession of her husband. She is also a good-looking lady who wears quite a bit of makeup, form-fitting dresses, and ostrich feathered-high heels. As the only woman on the ranch, Curley’s wife is lonely and sad – something her marriage to Curley only makes worse. She reveals throughout the course of the story that she is unhappy in her marriage because her husband seems to care little for her, and is really more interested in talking about himself than anything else.
The marriage between her and Torvald was not a true marriage; they never understood each other and never talked about serious matters. Nora knew that they have to transform themselves; otherwise they would not live a joyful life. Therefore Nora left to transform herself; she abandoned her husband and children for everyone’s good. The innate desire to be like a man, to have responsibilities, and to earn money
This meant that the girls would not only be left with little independent wealth upon their father’s death, but also without the security of a home. Consequently, Mrs Bennet had resolved that she would not rest until she succeeded in her goal. In other words, she well and truly “made it the business of her life” to get her daughters married. As a result, the somewhat cavalier fashion in which Elizabeth Bennet, second eldest of the daughters and main protagonist of the novel, refuses proposals from two well-respected gentlemen is truly atypical
Later on, Celie is married off to a man who is just as abusive as her Pa. She is not even willing to call her husband by his name, but instead by Mr. ___. He is only married to Celie just to take care of his four children, take care of his home, and work in his fields. Although she is still living in a bad environment, she is somewhat happy to be married because she can now have her younger sister leave Pa’s household. Unfortunately, after Nettie moves in with Celie and her husband, she is soon kicked out for not doing what Mr. ___ wants her to do sexually. Even though Nettie still promises to stay in contact with Celie through letter, Celie doesn’t hear from her.
Everyone was poor, no one worked, and those that did took what they could find. The mother, who is the main character and provides the monologue about her daughter, was young when she was married, young when her daughter was born, and young when her husband walked out on the family. Alone she had to provide for herself and her daughter. As a result her daughter was left to the care of people who she did not like, and who did not care for her very well. Her mother knew she needed her and did not want to be apart from her.
