She has no respect for her husband and doesn’t show any concern for him. It is further proof that they do not have a true relationship. However, it goes both ways as Curley doesn’t trust his wife at all. He automatically assumes that she is making romantic advances on Slim when he can’t find her around the ranch (pg 54, p6). Without even thinking twice about it, Curley believes the worst of his wife and that she has no devotion at all.
She is afraid to stand up to Tom for cheating on her all the time, and is too scared to tell Tom that she actually is in love with Gatsby since high school. She comes into contact with Mr. Gatsby when Nick bring them together, and that is when she is reminded of how much she loves him. She might begin to cheat on Tom with Gatsby, but that is not stated yet. She is too much of a coward to tell Tom she is cheating on him, because if a women cheats it usually is not okay and then the man will leave the women because they have other women they could get married to. Gatsby also has lots of money and lives across the water from her.
She is very selfish and doesn’t seem to care about other peoples’ feelings. She makes Gatsby believe that she loves him and that she is going to run away with him and she makes her own husband think that she never loved him. She is lying to both the men in her life because if she truly loved Gatsby she would have called him in the end and yet she didn’t. This is also evident in Daisy’s affair with Gatbsy because she betrays her husband Tom and lies to Gatsby (Jacqueline Lance, 2000). “I did love him once-but I loved you too” (107).
That’s what I get for marrying a brute of a man, a great, big, hulking physical specimen of a ——” (Fitzgerald 16). When Daisy says this it shows the readers that she is truly unhappy and doesn’t like being with someone like Tom. This also has an underlying meaning, Just like Tom never meant to physically hurt her he didn't mean to emotionally hurt her either. Many people used others just to get what they wanted. Daisy used Tom for this, even when she didn’t want to be with him, and the consequences such as pain were not necessarily worth the reward of money.
He seems to bypasses her wants there as well as in the confessing of who Daisy really loves and we never see him ask her. Allowing your own dreams cloud your vision and block others doesn’t always lead you down the best path, as he becomes very selfish when it comes to

Look at Papa and Mama after so many years” (Alvarez 122). Mate has the opportunity to be with Raul and Berto, but she second guesses because she does not know if love is real and lasting.

The customers of the A&P, consisting largely of old housewives and husbands, do not show acceptance of Queenie’s views; they would rather conform to social norms. As such, they avoid her, as if they fear her views will spread like a disease. Never taught to think for themselves, these people would rather avoid such change, and continue living their lives in mindless obedience of the social norm. They are unable to accept Queenie or the other two girls, merely because they are “unique in all aspects of their beings: walking, down the aisles, against the grain, going barefoot and in swimsuits, against the properly attired clientele” (“An Analysis of John Updike’s A&P”). Because the girls,
