Due to his mother’s stern moral beliefs, he does not have much interest in sexual relations and has negative views on it. The third problem is Dunstan’s fear of being manipulated in a relationship because, of his mothers firm control over his father. Thus due to the hostile childhood his mother creates, Dunstan can never form a successful relationship in adulthood and this leads to a life of loneliness. Having trust is a major aspect in keeping a continuous relationship. Being trustful though, is a characteristic Dunstan Ramsay lacks and this results in weakened relationships.
He does not know what he should do or say. Jealous of the former relationship between his wife and Robert, he is suspicious. He knows that his wife has told Robert about him and has probably complained about his faults. This makes him feel guilty and insecure. He later says how "I was not enthusiastic about his visit.... A blind man in my house was not something I looked forward to” (100).
A lack of this fundamental building block in a relationship can cause many disagreements and arguments. In “Say Yes”, by Tobias Wolff, the relationship between the two people has gone astray partly due to their ineffective communication: “Sometimes his wife got this look where she pinched her brows together and bit her lower lip and started down at something. When he saw her like this he knew he should keep his mouth shut, but he never did. Actually it made him talk more” (74). From here, the couple proceeded to get into quite the argument, showing that their communication habits are, indeed, unhealthy because the husband continued to talk, even though he knew it would lead to a disagreement.
How does Martin portray the character of Manon and her attitudes up until the time of her Mother’s death? In the opening pages, Manon repeatedly refers to her husband as “him”, which is shown in the 3rd person pronoun which gives the impression that he has no respect and she has no respect for him, therefore he has not been given a name. This shows that Manon has a negative attitude towards her husband as she believes he does not deserve a name as he is unworthy due to the treatment he has given Manon. As a result, this leads people to believe that there is no love between Manon and her husband because if he was given a name it would show a loving connection. Therefore, I believe Manon hates her husband.
Grandma wanted the touch put on her husband so he would stop stepping out to be with Lamartine, to bring her the love she never experienced with him. Grandma believes Grandpa didn’t love her because he had Lamartine in his life. The second sentence compares Grandpa with a hard nut, referring to his stubborn, yet very intelligent mind, therefore, as Lipshaw says, “I couldn’t see my way clear
This does not bode well and the relationship is strained from the onset. Throughout the play, Blanche made changes to his home as well as trying to come between him and his wife, Stella. Stanley didn’t approve of the lampshade simply because it wasn’t his decision. Stanley didn’t want to hear music when he played poker because it was distracting; he knew it was his home and he wanted to be able to do what he wanted- which is what he enjoyed when Stella was around. Blanche became a destructive force- she called Stanley a brute and even questioned
Guilt can cause a lot of emotional issues with an individual as I know personally first hand. Conrad also was dealing the fact that his mother was not being the motherly type toward him, and showed very little feeling toward him. Conrad did not feel that his mother gave him the balance and direction a teenage child needs to keep the moving in a positive manner or directions in their life. Beth, his mother was in a state of denial or separation attitude and chose not to express her feeling of love and emotion toward him. I can personally understand what Conrad is going through because those are emotions I dealt with in my life with my father.
If you can find them again. If you havn’t gone cold forever.” Up to this point his mother has been evasive of saying how she feels about Ishmael in the blunt manner , however this point shows that she is tired with Ishmaels stubborn attitude towards his feelings and how he should have approached this child instead of this childish way to act. This shows that even his mother now doubts him as a human being as well as many other characters in the book doubt him. This is critical changing point in the novel as Ishmael has one of the biggest choices given to any of the characters regarding the outcome to kabuo, and he is being blinded by his emotions for
In addition, he and his wife, Elizabeth, are going through a rough time in their marriage where there’s an obvious sense of distance between them. John Proctor evolved most significantly throughout the play because in the beginning his pride and fear of the town’s opinion caused him to keep his sin a secret; however by the end of the play, he is more concerned with his own integrity rather than his reputation. In the beginning of the play, John Proctor is torn between dealing with two different situations; the situation with Abigail who wants Proctor back along with jealousy of Proctor’s wife, Elizabeth; and he is also dealing with his strained marriage with his wife. As Abigail and the other girls begin with the hysterical acts of having hallucinations, Proctor is aware that the girls aren’t under any kind of witchcraft, and
