“The Story of an Hour” is a short story written by Kate Chopin. In this brief story, Chopin exhibits an unparalleled shape of marriage that is not always noticed by others and also incorporates an insane twist that involves massive disappointment for the main character. The characters assumptions lead to desires she never knew she had, resulting in the ultimate betrayal of herself. When the main character, Mrs. Louise Mallard, discovers the passing of her husband, Brently, she is astonishingly filled with ease and reflects on her new independent life. Eventually, Mrs. Mallard encounters an overwhelming mishap that portrays striking irony at the end of the story.
She knew she didn’t want to get married but the society pushed her to get married to someone like Buddy. That is why when Buddy proposed in chapter eight, and Esther said “‘I’m never going to get married…No. My mind is made up’” (), Buddy’s expression didn’t change because he knew she would have to follow the gender roles.

Then as she walked to the convenience store she had time to contemplate what she had done. She thought of it as mistake she would pay for with death. As she walked into the convenience store to retrieve milk her peripheral vision faded, the ringing in her ears got louder, and her pulse raced faster and faster.
