Mariam later opens her eyes and realizes that Laila isn't an enemy and forgives Laila for trying to get her thrown out. Mariam allowing herself to forgive Laila leads to a bond that helps Mariam find meaning in their lives (250). Laila seems to have a better life than Mariam, but that all changes when Laila's parents are killed by a rocket.

Even though she wasn’t the legitimate heir as her nine siblings, Jalil was a true hero in her eyes as she was always happy with him. Mariam was a simple girl who loved both her parents. In spite of her mother warnings she trusted her father and gets shocked when he gets her married to an aged man and sends her to Kabul with him. One can imagine how her heart ached when she says, “Don’t come. I won’t see you.
Soraya Soraya was the wife of Amir and a flat, static character in the story. She had a gently hooked nose, luminous eyes, and a sickle-shaped birthmark on her jaw. She was kind and beautiful. However, because she was impulsive and rebellious in the past and ran away with a boyfriend, she had no suitors until Amir fell in love with her. She was loyal to Amir and supported his decision to become a writer.
First of all, her emotions do not show she is psychopathic enough to go crazy and kill her husband. For example, at the beginning of the story she seems quite happy with her husband, looks like she loves him and listens to his orders. The author shows no sign that previously, Mary was a murderer or had a mental disorder. She also takes care of her unborn baby. Second of all, when her husband Patrick told Mary that he will leave her,even though she is a good wife it sounded really “cold” and was careless.
She was content with what she had with Naomi and God rewarded her for that. She could have given up on God because of her inability to marry a man because of where she lived.But, she stayed true in him and God took notice. It says in Ruth 2:19-22, “ 19 Her
In his writing, Frank Abagnale states, “There was no pressure on me to leave, although I wasn’t happy. The situation on my dual home front hadn’t changed. Dad still wanted to win Mom back and Mom didn’t want to be won. Dad was still using me as a mediator in his second courtship of Mom, and she continued to resent his casting me in the role of Cupid. I disliked it myself.
No matter the strong pull of love though, Meursault escapes its grasps though his lack of empathy and basic human connections. This ideology is shared by those around Meursault: such as how Salamano lost his wife and “He hadn’t been happy with his wife, but he’d pretty much gotten used to her (1.5.44).” Meursault knows that love is only temporary and knows that love means nothing in life and cannot change anything: “That evening Marie came by to see me and asked me if I wanted to marry her. I said it didn’t make any difference to me and that we could if she wanted to (1.5.44).” He does accept that love is something tangible but understands that there is no significance to it, how it has no reason, and is not required for living. So, therefore, why should he care about this emotion if it serves no evolutionary purpose to help us thrive and grow in the universe? Like Meursault, the Universe is unforgiving and ignores feeling to continue the circle of
They had spoken once, but there is no need for speech if it is a habit, anyway.” (Ch.1, p.4) This is an example of not just how much respect Juana had for her husband, but also how comfortable they were around each other; she knew exactly what he needed and wanted without him uttering a word to her. The author also mentioned, “She was looking at him as she was always looking at him when he awakened.” (Ch.1, p.1) This also emphasizes how much they trust each other and, again, how much Juana respects Kino. It wasn’t that Juana was afraid to get out of bed and wake Kino up by doing so; she just simply admired him and waited until he was awake to then get up and prepare breakfast. Kino
Independence vs. commitment Since the beginning of the novel, we can appreciate that Bathsheba is a strong, independent woman who knows what she is doing and seems like she knows what she wants. As we can recall, when Oak asked her to marry him Bathsheba said that she did not want to be any men’s property, at least not in that moment. From that moment on we can see her display a magnificent role; when she inherited her uncle’s farm many of her workers were not happy with this because Bathsheba was a woman, but she showed them that it was not important because she could be as efficient as any other man and that she did not need a man by her side to do the hard work. These facts show us that Bathsheba is independent. On the other hand, as soon as she meets officer Troy, Bathsheba falls for him and marries without hesitation, she did just what she said that silly girls usually do and she would never do; for a while, Bathsheba is faithful to officer
The treatment of women must have been near atrocious if the narrator’s wife looks forward to one of her friend’s visits, especially since she knows that he will treat her, most likely, better than her husband. She revels in the spotlight, and doesn’t seem at all concerned or worried how included into the conversation the narrator feels. Eventually, the narrator’s wife leaves the conversation, and the narrator is left without a buffer to deal with Robert. This, I believe, opens his eyes to his wife’s reality and standard of living, while also making him sympathize more with
