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.
Kyle, David, and Cass have all been damaged by the words of their parents.

Feminist Criticism of “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman In Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story, “The Yellow Wallpaper”, the nameless protagonist is a woman who is completely isolated and has no say in anything that regards her own life. Her husband John does what he believes to be what’s best for her, but in fact, is the complete opposite. It is this sequestration, brought on to her by her own husband, which led to her insanity. John loves his wife, and she knows it. However, he is quite stubborn and the lack of communication in their relationship is very unhealthy.
Help me!” But I couldn’t help him because I didn’t know where he was. And that was all he said: ‘Mom! Help me!’” (126) Chris’s mother said this after waking up in the middle of the night from a nightmare about her son. It must be one of the most horrific and unbearable pains, for a parent to outlive their child, so that leave leaves me to conclude that Chris McCandless must have been a very selfish and uncaring person if he would willingly cause his family this much pain and
Some would think that they will miss their families and relationships and most of all, love. But the people in Utopia have never experienced any of these. They were brought up in conditioning centers and feel that parents and family are primitive. The mere sound of the word annoys them.

A similar situation occurs in the Australian Classic “Muriels Wedding” when Bill Heslop, father of Muriel Heslop, is found to be a deceiving human being, hiding an affair from the wife and holding onto past losses. Muriel can be seen going through a rather extensive identity crisis trying to figure out her place in life although the father was no support or ‘Guiding Light’ to her, causing her to lose her sense of what her identity was and what it should be. Without these key figures in our lives, it can be extremely hard to progress in our life and create an identity that everyone wants to create for themselves. Society is a major factor in determining who we are, it moulds our identity, and our social standing.in turn creating a non stop
Alluding back to this quote, Wharton exposes these feelings for what they really are when Ethan's wife, Zeena, leaves him home alone with her caretaker, and cousin, Mattie for a couple days. In spite of this, Gabriel rebelled in a slightly different way. To expand, Gabriel didn't really appreciate his wife, Gretta, and often thought of leaving her. Yet, he stayed; for if he left, Gabriel would face the ultimate punishment, social isolation. Therefore, he caused turbulence with himself, because he was going against his true feelings to satisfy his lust and desire for a companion.

He believes that he is always right, he is abusive, and is always being short-changed by life. Even though his wife is impartial to his actions, she looks at him with an “anxious face at his shoulder,” which describes how weary she is when in the presence of her husband (Faulkner 1961). My father was also abusive. I was not yet born so I was not victim to the abuse but my older siblings and mother were not spared. Similarly, Sarty’s whole family lives under a blanket of fear and anxiety due to his father’s insecurities, and resentment for people who belittle him.
