There does not seem to be any similarities between her and her husband as there are completely different people. She never fights back and gets angry whenever there seems to be trouble. Instead she is the one that keeps the peace around the family and holds it all
Patrick is a much more important person to Mary than Calvin is to Dora. First of all, before major events (Revelation of Patrick’s affair and Discovery of people underground) in the stories, Mary thinks Patrick necessary for her life though Dora thinks Calvin’s presence a little burdensome. Mary loves to spend her evening waiting with pleasure for Patrick to come home. She also loves to “luxuriate in the presence of this man (1)”. However, the fact Dora tries to “control the surge of joy… (2)” when Calvin seems to get a heart attack indicates that she has never been comfortable being with him.
Other than that, she is known for being a loyal friend and independent, specifically from boys. She never gets a boy in her way as she prioritize her friends and school first (Pham, 2014). We think that both characters are contrast with one another. Hermione is known for being independent from boys, whereas Cho is seen to be dependent from boys. The series also emphasizes on Hermione’s bravery, while Cho is seen emotional most of the time.

His son, Walter Jr., shares his father’s ethical disposition. In Chapter 2, Walter Cunningham Jr. refuses to accept a quarter from Miss Caroline for lunch as Cunninghams never take anything they can not pay back. Scout tells Miss Caroline, "The Cunninghams never took anything they can't pay back—no church baskets, no scrip stamps. They never took anything off of anybody, they get along on what they have. They don't have much, but they get along on it" (Lee 26).
In contrast Becky is always optimistic, she also thinks about herself, however, she is not selfish. She thinks about herself and others at the same time, because Gilbert is important to Becky as well, compared to Gilbert never thinks about himself. Moreover, the relationship between Gilbert and his brother-Arnie is similar to a father and his son, for example: Gilbert is always taking care of his brother-Arnie, Arnie is always doing the wrong things and he doesn’t know what he is doing at the same time, however, Gilbert always shows him the right way. And the relatioships between Gilbert and his mommy Bonnie couldn’t be like a mother and
Of husband and wife, brother and sister, friend and friend, or any other relationship that is formed in one's life, the bond between mother and child is the strongest. Throughout The Awakening, by Kate Chopin, Edna's children, by their very existence, serve as chains that keep her from pursuing her own goals and desires, as she is bound to them by her motherly duties. Edna's feelings of bondage by her children force her to remove herself from an innately meaningful relationship, in an attempt to elsewhere find meaning. This backwards mindset leads to Edna's eventual downfall, where, even then, she could not understand what she let go. Her stagnant thinking throughout the book reveals that she never had an "awakening", and she was doomed to
Even after Ismene warns Antigone about burying her brother, she is unstoppable. She goes on with what she partakes to be right even though she does not receive help from her sister. On the part of Creon, he upholds his dedication to leadership so much that he ignores the plea by his son to spare Antigone. He thinks that the only reason which makes his son do that is that he is loyal to Antigone. Therefore, both characters have this tendency to trust themselves and it brings both good and adverse effects to them.
Moreover, Lady Macduff has this vulnerable air about her, she is defenceless against anyone who would want to do her harm because of her kindness, and so, she was doomed because of it. Many believe her to be the ideal woman, and they are correct. In the play, a character was impressed by her resolve when she found out about her husband’s predicament, she only had her son left, so he was her top priority. This person told her face to face, and I quote; “Bless you, fair damme.” Those words alone speak volumes on Lady Macduff’s character. Moreover, Lady Macduff was incconect throughout the entire happenings of the play, she did not take part in anything remotely suspicious, and did not take a single life, as such, she did not have anything to feel guilty about, so she felt no remorse in
Henrietta and her family encountered multiple difficulties: from finding a place to live to seeking jobs to support themselves. But the worst problem that they always had to deal with on a consistent basis surrounded family relationships. One of the biggest obstacles Henrietta and her family had to face head on was dealing with their daughter Elsie who had a sort of developmental disability. Especially having to watch her grow up and not be able to get the help she desperately needed but was unavailable because the family could not support her individual needs fully, the only person that could ease her pain was Henrietta which is illustrated by this quote, “…but she just stared back, unflinching, her eyes haunted with fear and sadness that only softened when Henrietta rocked her back and forth” (Skloot 44). Even with having to deal with many other issues almost daily, nothing ever deterred the Lacks family from their faith in a divine spirit.
