This also contributes to her life being labelled as a “terrible waste” because she probably did not have any outlandish aspirations as a small child and, consequently, could not form “regular” aspirations as a young adult. As they get older, Veronica is left to raise her siblings as the responsibility had “fallen on her”. Okeke does help as he “helped her fetch water from the stream and occasionally chopped firewood”, but there is only so much that he can do as his support is barred by his own “physical inadequacy”. Especially as Veronica is abused by her father “night after night”. Both Okeke and his father seem to both be responsible for this portion of Veronica’s life.
I seen him goin’ in your house.” (Slim 32) Slim assumed she was looking for unwarranted attention from him. What the ranch hands did not realize is that her loneliness led her to these actions, “She put her hand behind her back and leaned against the door frame so that her body was thrown forward.” (Steinbeck 31). Being in a relationship should satisfy one's need for attention. Curley's wife considered her marriage unhealthy and did not consider Curley a good husband. Throughout the novella, Curley's wife was consistently looking for Curley and she spent most of her time in the ranch house alone.
Walter is very insecure about his manhood throughout the story and his mother even tries to give his manhood to him. The only thing that Mama does when she tries to “fix” Walter’s manhood is make him more depressed and insecure about his role of a man in the world. In “A Raisin in the Sun” manhood plays a role of a brick wall for the characters, especially Walter. Walter is the father of Travis and the husband of Ruth but he doesn’t run the household. The apartment is his mother’s.
He suffers from insecurity, and this weakens him mentally, which even makes Mrs. Ramsay to think that her husband would have wrote better books if he had not married (58). Mrs. Ramsay also demonstrates her imperfections. Although she plays the roles of protector, supporter, and hostess voluntarily, she yearns for the time and space to be just by herself. With lots of people to take care of, Mrs. Ramsay is always busy being conscious of the vulnerability of everyone else, especially her children. In addition to this, they share the same acknowledgment that nothing lasts forever.
In this scene, Curley’s wife talks to Lennie about her life before she meets Curley. Lennie tells her to leave but she responds by saying, “I get lonely...You can talk to people, but I can’t talk to nobody but Curley” (Steinbeck, pg 87). Curley’s wife always feels isolated and alone because
At first it might seem as if Faye’s problem is more dire than the mother in “A Sorrowful Woman”, but it soon becomes clear that that is not the case. While Faye struggles with the fact that she cannot have children, the mother in the second piece already has a child but has become unable to handle and love him like she should. These are both problems that occur in people’s lives and are usually not spoken about openly, yet the author of “A Sorrowful Woman” really goes in depth about the mother’s deep seeded depression and want to withdraw from life while it seems like Faye’s problem is just as upsetting, yet seems to be glossed over and goes immediate to the solution to make the issue disappear, and fast forwards to their happy

King Henry replaces his wives every time the wife is not able to produce a son. Leaving his previous wife and family alone without much or any support. Not only does he have a betraying attitude he also is very arrogant about himself because even though he is above all in position he does not have any character to support all of the wives and their families and thinks once the wife is not able to any thing for him the wife is no value anymore. Which is because of King Henry, Mary Tudor faces neglection. Hence even though King Henry does show Mary neglection Mary endures the cruelty of her father and keeps her patience silently.
He was an affectionate husband and provided well for his wife, but she always remained quiet and distant. An Indian immigrant woman who had accompanied her husband to America leaving her native country, but was most likely was distorted with her alienation and daily chores of the household and taking care of their son; and to escape her boredom she was in a habit to take walks all by herself in the evening., that’s when she disappeared putting the husband in a situation where he morns about his predicament and the future of his son, and hardly could find words to solace the child. She’d been out for her evening walk, she took one every day after he got back from the office. Yes, yes, always alone, she said that was her time for herself. (He didn’t quite understand that, but he was happy to watch his little boy, play ball with him, perhaps, until she returned to serve them dinner.)
Slovak is feeling bad for leaving it on bad terms, letting him leave the way he did. The flexion of their marriage trying to ignore their problems, the guilt of wanting to move on and to forget about that part of her life, but looking for some type of answer.
