By holding important dialogue between characters in all of these different settings and contexts, Austen adds important information for the reader to unpack without having to explicitly explain it. To give a brief overview, in early nineteenth century England women were allowed to do very few things and make very few choices without the aid or approval of a man. Often times the men who controlled every action they were allowed to take was usually either their husband or father. Women were virtually forbidden from making a living at that point in time or achieving any financial success, so whether or not they pleased a man would often determine their entire livelihood. This often meant that very few things could be done outside the house that did not involve domestic errands.
Catherine is most affected by this loss. According to Howard, Martin, Berlin and Gunn (2012), this absence could be seen as key to the instability of familial ties. Such instability is particularly obvious in the growing gap between Mr. Earnshaw and his children. In the beginning Mr. Earnshaw is introduced as a kind father, asking his children what to bring for them from Liverpool, however, after his wife’s death Mr. Earnshaw is unable to understand Jokes from his children and “Catherine, on her part, had no idea why her father should be crosser and less patient in his ailing condition” (Bronte, 2009, p.36). While Nelly assert that Mr. Earnshaw was a kindhearted father though he was rather severe and strict sometimes, this does not eliminate the fact his relationship with his children, following his wife’s death, was characterized by negligence and lack of understanding.
And living in such isolation she actually had rare at any point seen any young fellow from the world without till she saw you. He at that point says "Hardly," however his mom besides asks him, "You were her initially cherish?" Angelʼs mother who relentlessly stresses over immaculateness and virtue―virginity―of a spouse of her sonʼs speaks to Victorian traditional ethical quality, and the thought lies somewhere down in the brains of the Clares. Mr. Clare, Angelʼs father, thinks in an indistinguishable path from his motherʼs. Whenever Heavenly attendant and his dad discuss a perfect lady of the hour of him, Mr. Clare encourages him to wed "an immaculate and principled lady you [Angel] won't discover one more further bolstering your actual good fortune, and surely not more to your motherʼsmind and my own, than your companion Leniency" (As she is a girl of Mr. Clareʼs earnestminded companion Dr. Serenade, the two his dad and mom prescribe her to get hitched to.
They are poor but still they’re for each other and providing what they have and need even though it may not be the richest it is all they need at the time. “ It sits right there, the back I love” (25-26), these lines are the ones that draw you to how much she loves her husband.

Slowly, he is rejected by his family who he adores, showing us just how important he was within the family unit. The family take Gregor for granted. “I have responsibilities for my parents and my sister”(101), Gregor is the sole provider for the family; being the only one to uphold a job. Without him, they would not be able to afford simple necessities. His family as a result, become lethargic; weak and
Once Sarah realizes that her husband is building a barn, her son Sammy admits that he had also known about the barn for three months. He just “’didn’t think ‘twould do no good.’” (Freeman 650) Whether intentional or not, the father had taught Sammy to think that men could make decisions without consulting their partners and that it was actually better to hide the barn instead of facing the issue. If men had the ability to do things, simply because they were men, why not just do the easy thing and avoid any conversation about it? It was an understandable mindset for Sammy to take on, but it was already leading to a horrible treatment of women as he clearly could not even respect his own mother. But while Father pushes ideals of toxic masculinity onto his son, Mother also pushed similar ideals on their daughter Nanny.
He is also often seen as equating love with luck and feels that his mother will only feel this love for him if he is capable of putting his money on winners. Before the short story even begins, “the process of disaffection has already occurred, and the close love between husband and a wife which would have generated the mystical energy necessary for the family’s well-being has been transformed into an ugly passion, greed” (Koban 3). Paul begins to feel that he is the only one who will be able to fulfill this need for his mother because she feels she cannot do it for herself. She strongly believes that she will never have the ability of being lucky considering she married a man who lacked this luckiness and gift of choosing a winning horse. Along with the rest of his family, Paul days are so consumed with the idea of making money that they often hear repeated phrases throughout their household.
Ichabod’s intentions with Katrina were never true after that. The love that Ichabod has for Katrina was just over money, the rivalry of Ichabod and Brom Bones, and never over how much he liked her. The love that Ichabod has for Katrina was just over money. Katrina was the daughter of a very wealthy man, once Ichabod found out, was all that mattered to Ichabod and many other suitors before him. He never had much money due to being a teacher.
The home they make together differs with their poverty and the world outside. Their love seems to be never ending, though Della worries about how her sacrifice will affect her husband because of how it affects her looks. One theme could be, love is the only thing you need to be happy. While Mathilde Loisel and Della Young are both young, beautiful women married to caring and very loving husbands, they are completely different in personalities.

Meanwhile, Mathilde suffers because she cannot buy fancy clothing, diamonds and live in a palace (De Maupassant). In addition to that, both of them have husbands that deeply care for them. Della’s husband, Jim, in order to please her wife, sold his only watch to buy her a Christmas present (Henry). In the meantime, Mathilde’s husband used all his father heritage to help pay for the necklace replacement (De Maupassant). It is possible to see through characterization that even though they are characters from different stories Della and Mathilde have a number of
