“‘Your wife doesn’t love you, said Gatsby. ‘She’s never loved you. She loves me.’” (F. Scott Fitzgerald 138) In this example, Gatsby was shouting at Tom and putting pressure on Daisy by pushing her into this argument about her affair.

I believe that Fitzgerald’s parallel to Gatsby and Zelda’s parallel to Daisy says something important about their relationship. If we go off of what happened in the book, Fitzgerald was, at one time, enamoured with Zelda, and became wealthy to win her over. It worked, and the two of them got married. However, Fitzgerald soon realized that it was not him Zelda loved, but his wealth and success. This must have devastated Fitzgerald, as Gatsby’s life ended because of Daisy.
Drawing from his personal story of meeting and charming Zelda, Fitzgerald formed Gatsby’s and Daisy’s story to match. In their youth, Zelda and Daisy were identical. Both grew up wealthy and needed a husband who could support their extraneously materialistic lifestyles. This is seen when Gatsby tells Nick of how he lost Daisy. “She wanted her life shaped now, immediately--and the decision must be made by some force--of love, of money, of unquestionable practicality--that was close at hand.

The outcome of them not letting her go led them to awful decisions to win over Daisy. However they show different characteristics to accomplish there goal of getting Daisy.
Scott Fitzgerald. The very fabric of love pertains to the mutual accumulation of intimate feelings and true mutual endearing of one another. In the case of Tom and Daisy, well as Daisy and Gatsby this fails in the name of love. Tom and Daisy’s marriage was to carelessness and the same stature of wealth along with their social class. Their distancing during the development of the novel shows that they truly do not love each other for their qualities as people but the quality of their pockets and their name.
Gatsby was able to buy everything, but not the only thing he wanted – happiness that came from Daisy, his golden dream girl. She was only interested in men who had countless expensive belonging and wealth, and that’s what Jay Gatsby was known for and worked so hard to achieve her
