Dowd’s argument was about donating organs. Her niece, Jennifer donated her half of her liver to Dowd’s brother. After the surgery, Jennifer wanted everyone to know that you should donate organs, especially when you’re dead.

When Jordan, Daisy’s friend, told Nick about Daisy’s past, she stated that she was in love with Gatsby but she chose Tom because he was rich. Before she got married she received a letter from Gatsby and she started crying and wanted to stop the wedding. Daisy grabbed her string of pearls that Tom gave to her and stated, “ ‘Take ‘em down-stairs and give ‘em back to whoever they belong to. Tell ‘em all Daisy’s change’ her mine. Say: Daisy’s change her mine!’”( Fitzgerald 76).
While Tom and Daisy at least try to appear happy and loving, Myrtle and George are hardly identifiable as married. Myrtle has lost complete interest in George and any life that she has with him, and runs off with Tom to live the extravagant life that she’s always wanted. Even before George and Myrtle were married, Myrtle’s understanding was that George was wealthy and powerful. Upon finding out that he didn’t have everything that she dreamed of, she stopped being in love with the idea of being with George, leading to an affair with Tom years later. “She smiled slowly and walking through her husband as if he were a ghost and shook hands with Tom, looking him flush in the eye.” We can see the disinterest she has for George by comparing her attraction towards Tom.

Heart broken by the hard work her husband put towards his life and her son spent the entire money out of selfishness she still loved her son.

Gatsby’s obsession is also illustrated by the fact that he hopes that Daisy will just randomly show up to one of his parties like many other people do (81). Daisy was born into the upper-class lifestyle, “’She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart, she never loved anyone except me!’”
Mathilde always imagined herself in a high social position with wonderful jewels and expensive clothing instead she have to wear simple clothing. In her mind she is doing her husband a favor by marry him because he is a ''little clerk in the Ministry of Education''(Maupassant 3). She never considered her husband feeling he was heartbroken because she was not happy about the invitation to the Ministry party but she was too busy fretting over what to wear to notice.

For instance, when Jess dad lets her go play soccer to get it out of her system and her mom goes nuts. “She shouldn't be running around with all these men showing her bare legs to 70,000 people! She's bringing shame on the family. And you three shouldn't encourage her!
