Fitzgerald creates a contrast to what Tom and Daisy seem to be on the outside by introducing the cheating ways of Tom. Catherine says “Neither of them can stand the person they’re married to.” (33) This shows that Myrtle and Tom both want out of their marriage. With their unhappy relationships, they want to be together. “Making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand.” (37) This shows that Tom has an anger issue. Myrtle is strong for staying with him after he breaks her nose. Tom and Daisy are unhappy with the person they are married to but Tom still hits her.
