Many couples end up deciding that the woman and the children will take the males last name, because that it just how it has always been and why change the tradition. Many women find that having the same last name as their husband helps them feel more like a family, and a new name is an important symbol of the journey they are taking together. Personally, when I get married, I will gladly change my last name to whatever my husband happens to be, because following the tradition is important to me. Williamson gave her own experience on how not following tradition can affect everyone in the family when she stated “He’d just delivered the happiest news of his mother’s life - that her first grandchild had been born and followed up with a sucker punch to the heart. The baby was going to have my last name” (69) Williamson’s mother-in-law is woman who
He isn’t being pressured by anyone or feels like he has to marry this woman. He wants to marry her for pure love. Although in “Pride and Prejudice” Mr. Collins felt he needed to marry a woman named Lizzie because that’s what everyone around him wanted. Mr. Collins would be able to take over the Bennet household if he did so. Collins feels like he’s doing the Bennet’s a favor by proposing to Lizzie.
She follows it because she is now programmed to believe this is the way of life and in turn she has become extremely tentative. She was raised to believe that you needed a husband to take care of you, although she personally believed she would do fine without a husband. She struggles with this because as I stated earlier, she did not want to be the average woman that relied on a man for her every need, but as time passed she became exactly that. Even though she was unhappy with her being, she wanted her daughters to follow in her footsteps and find a supportive husband versus going out and being themselves. She was satisfied with never wanting for anything financially, so much so she allowed this to distract her from the fact that she was emotionally unfulfilled in every aspect of her life.
However, keeping your name is ensuring your identity and being respectful to your parents; not keeping your name cannot show love between two people changing. I am sure that I will not change my name after I marry to a person. I will never change because it holds a lot of meaning and was given to me at birth and my
Women are waiting longer and longer to have children and to start a family. Men generally want to start families after marriage, so I am sure that this is a way for women to hold off on having children. As far as infedelity goes, it does not matter on marriage or cohabitation, it depends on the person. It is a personal choice on whether or not you step outside of your committd relationshop. A marriage license, a simple piece of paper does not decipher who will or will not cheat.
I think that Lance wanted to clear the air about everything that had happened in the past with certain people and wanted to let people know how he felt about them. For example, Lance’s step-fathers and father. Throughout the novel, Lance expresses his feelings towards these men by telling everyone that they have nothing to do with him and he has no feelings whatsoever towards them. I believe he wanted to let them know that he and his mother have succeeded in life without them. Concerning Lance’s name, I think that he wanted to reveal that a name is just a name and he has no relation to the family and doesn’t intend to either.
Antigone has done no wrong doing to anyone. All she has done is tried to honor her deceased brother that no matter the reason should not have been exiled. You should never have made a law that prevents the burial of your own nephew, even if he did fight against the town, he was still family and deserved
From 'Pride and Prejudice' the first chapter opens with Austen saying 'It is truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of good fortune must be in want of a wife.' Similarly, in 'Much Ado About Nothing' Benedick says 'the world must be peopled', both of these quotes are referring to marriage, saying that marriage needs to happen, and is wanted. As in that time, you were frowned upon if you were not married. Even though, no one marries for love, in 'Pride and Prejudice' Elizabeth Bennett, the main character, who is witty and pretty, does want to marry for love. She doesn't not want to have to rely on a man for money and a
I could never imagine not being supportive of him and can never imagine not nurturing his mind. I know all too well the role I play in his development and how he views himself, how eventually the world will view him. I will never hamper his development by letting him feel as if he is not good enough for his own mother's approval because I fear he will seek that before all else. I fear he will be like myself and waste away years trying to be someone he isn't for an approval that does not matter when it isn't given. A childs largest support system stems from their imediate environment and their family.
Yates just wants his daughter to be happy and to have it in abundance to have it be known. He doesn’t want bad things he wants the best for her and to have her have those standards for herself just the best of everything.
