Respect is also shown through the family by loyalty to each other. A husband-wife relationship that exhibits loyalty is Odysseus and Penelope. Out of their respect and love for each other they waited, and were finally reunited. Another example of loyalty in the family are the father-son relationships.

For many, family is not only a blessing, but our greatest accomplishment. We are proud of the love we give and receive, for our children and the habits, emotional responses, obligations and values that we teach them. In The Odyssey, Odysseus is no different and the importance of his family is demonstrated as he weeps tears of sadness in their absence and rejects Calypso’s offer of immortality in exchange for his companionship. “‘My lady goddess, here is no cause for anger.

His dog Argos is no exception to this. In the novel, Homer describes the first meeting of Argos and Odysseus after his return home. He depicts Argos as though he were a puppy again, saying “as soon as he saw Odysseus standing there, he dropped his ears and wagged his tail’ (Homer 180). Argos’ blatant display of happiness at his owner’s long return is a sign of his faithfulness and love for his master This meeting pulls at Odysseus’ heartstrings as he takes in the shape of his old and mistreated hound, and he tears up. He hadn’t been taken care of properly in the years since Odysseus left, but Argos still remembered the man, proving his obedience.
Odysseus should be considered unheroic because he refused to listen to anyone's suggestions and kept putting his men in dangerous situations.For example, Odysseus’ men told him to take the cheese and lambs and leave but Odysseus told them,”Ah, how sound was that! Yet I refuse, I wished to see the caveman, what he had offer- no pretty sight, it turned out, for my friends” (Homer 5). This demonstrates unheroic behavior because they didn't know whether or not the cyclops would be nice but instead of putting safety first, Odysseus insisted on meeting the cyclops. He let his curiosity take over and stopped caring about what would happen to them. Also, when Odysseus and his men finally escaped from the cyclops cave, Odysseus continued to yell at the cyclops,” O’ cyclops would you feast on my companions, puny am I in a cave mans hands?
