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.
Don Elias didn’t go out and make an honest living. He was only respected by the people around him because they feared him. Dona Matilida was not seen as an equal partner in the relationship. She was more of a servant to Don Elias. I believe that when they first got married there was some kind of love in their relationship, but when they realized they could not conceive a child Don Elias blamed his wife.
If I had the opportunity to meet Catherine Amesbury or Cathy Ames I would not take it. Cathy in my opinion is very unloyal, uncaring, unkind, selfish person. She was very betraying and deceitful. I do not believe she would be a very good mother, wife, sister, daughter, or friend. She cared only about her self and what made her happy and what pleased her.
However, after being reacquainted, Gatsby exclaims, "She [Daisy] never loved you [Tom], do you hear"" he cried. "She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me!"'(137). Even though it appears that Daisy places importance on the values of love, she still chooses the status and comfort of Tom Buchanan’s wealth. In Tom and Daisy’s superficial relationship, the absence of love is evident by the lack of their communication.
Gatsby sees Daisy is the perfect woman and is very stubborn in that he is unable to realize that she lacks compassion and love. Gatsby's obsession also makes it impossible for him to realize that his relationship with Daisy is very unrealistic and that things cannot be the same as they were in the past. Gatsby ignores the present and Daisy's actions and still Caesar is the golden girl she was many years ago. For example, he is unable to see her recklessness and carelessness, which is displayed it several times throughout the book. One day when visiting Daisy he notes that she is not even love her own baby.
Daisy has the wrong ideas because she has already been corrupted by the power of materialism. She does not care about herself; so, when she says that the best thing a girl can be is a fool, it is because when she looks at herself she does not see happiness in her and by being a fool she will forget about her emptiness and look at the material goods as if they will fill her emptiness. She also shows carelessness by not worrying about her daughter. She only cares about herself and how things will affect her, putting her daughter to the side. Not only does Daisy care about how things will benefit her, but her mind is also overwhelmed by the power of money, thus, losing her
One way Austen shows this is through Mr and Mrs Bennet, Mrs Bennet does not understand her husband Mr Bennet, and whilst Mrs Bennet’s aim in life is to get her daughters married to rich men, in contrast, Mr Bennet is not interested in family affairs and does not seem to think much of his daughters in general. 'They are all silly and ignorant like other girls.' Austen presents Mr Bennet and his behaviour as being wholly disinterested shown by his generalisation saying they are “all silly” suggesting a lack of attachment, his goal isn’t to get his daughters married and so doesn’t impact upon it. Unlike Mrs Bennet, who embarrassing behaviour shows an extreme contrast to her husband; her behaviour, ironically, does more to harm her daughters' chances at finding husbands than it does to help. "What is Mr. Darcy to me, pray, that I should be afraid of him?"

Illusion of Being Well Liked Through the character Jay Gatsby, Scott Fitzgerald disproves the idea that money can buy happiness, friendship and love. Through the actions of Gatsby, Fitzgerald portrays the idea that wealth cannot buy happiness. Gatsby having all the money in the world, still does not make him happy. Even though he has nice clothes, a car, a mansion and good looks he still is unhappy because a life with Daisy was his main goal and he never reached it. Trying to show off all of his possessions didn't impress her, but made her feel sad.
This is primarily because he does not think about the most important aspect of this obsession with is Georgiana herself. He lacks the respect and consideration to avoid embarrassment for Georgiana. By constantly focusing on this one flaw that his wife has, it has made her very self-conscience and equally despise it. If Aymler had more of a conscience he would not try to obtain this sense of pleasure of picturing his wife without the birthmark as he would embrace it and think it was equally as beautiful as the rest of her
