She married for love, and the love turned to dust. She had bonny children, yet she felt they had been thrust upon her, and she could not love them.” Even though she has everything she needs, a stable family and enough money to support her needs, she still wants more. She says that she is “very unlucky” because she “married an unlucky husband”. Instead of taking the responsibility upon herself that she is unlucky and does not have everything she wants, she blames others for her lack of happiness. In the end she turns out to be the luckiest character in the story because with Paul’s luck she gains all of the money he won.
This shows that she is only with him for his money and power. When Daisy gave birth to Pammy she said “I’m glad it’s a girl. And I hope she’ll be a fool-that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.”(Fitzgerald 21).She implies here that the world is no place for a woman and all she can do is hope to survive through beauty rather than brains. However during the reunion Gatsby is still blinded by his dream. Even though Daisy isn’t the same as he remembers.

It was said that the greatest night of their lifes is when they marry and lose their virginity to their beloved husband. “ Without sexual purity, a women was no women but rather a lower form of being “fallen women” unworthy of love of her sex and unfit for their company” ( Lavender 2). It was unlikely at this time for the unfit “fallen women” to get married. However in “A Respectable Women”, Mrs. Baroda defies the role of purity when she desires her husband’s friend. In the short story “A Respectable Women” by Kate Chopin, Mrs. Baroda the leading women goes against her purity and faithfulness to her husband because she was his friend Gouvernail.
Just as she was oblivious to the things she once had, she is now oblivious to the fact that her greed has caused this terrible fate to happen.

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.

They are both unhappy because their husbands trap them, then they are happy because they are free from their marriage. In the end, they are sad again because Mrs. Wright was incarcerated, and Mrs. Mallard because her husband was actually alive. The relationship the women have with their spouse was a big contribution to the terrible lives they lived. Women could not own any property at the time, or get a divorce from their husband. In patriarchal societies

Hamlet: Love Lasts a Lifetime Hamlet’s peers thought that the cause of his sudden insanity was his love for Ophelia; many readers question his love for her. Ophelia she was a beauty that many people thought was unworthy of a prince; she was a courtier’s daughter. What many of them did not realize was that the main reason for Hamlet’s madness was caused by his hatred for Claudius and his mother, Gertrude.
