And how another women walked for days with her infant twin daughters (a baby under each arm) to escape from an invasion that would most definitely leave her dead if she stayed, getting blisters and bleeding from her hands and feet, only to grow weak and leave her twins behind in hope a generous stranger would find them and care for them, also leaving her jewels and money with the twins as well as a reward. Tan chose these portrayals to show the power of maternal love and helps us sympathize why the mothers act the way they do to their own current daughters because all they really did want is the very best for their daughters, not like the life their mothers had to go through with the oppression and fear of poverty. The stories of the mothers were practically in the same circumstances as the actual historical realities. But in the end, it was all to keep their family happy and alive, while the women endured their own suffering with no one to help them but

n a Tale of Two Divorces, Rophie says “ We will always need legal divorce just as an emergency escape hatch is crucial in every submarine.” Divorce is the cushion that every marriage has just in case it fails. Rophie’s assertion about always needing a divorced is justified throughout her whole essay when she talks about how her mother was not strong enough to get a divorce even though her husband treated her so poorly. Then she goes on to tell her own story about how she married a guy much like her father. When they had a child, she realized that her husband was too intoxicated, out of the house, too busy in his own world or consumed with nervousness and she realized she needed to do what was best for her family even if it was difficult.
