Faulkner explains the importance of marriage in Emily’s life. When she loses her father, she realizes that her dream of him giving her away could never be fulfilled. She disappears for a while but this only lead me to believe that the importance of marriage was pressed into her by her father. His death obviously had an affect on her life, but Faulkner
Many characters in “The Rocking Horse Winner” exemplify such values of fortuity, materialism and mazuma. For example, when Paul explicates to his mother that he’s fortuitous and God told him, his mother responds acridly, “I hope he did dear!” This demonstrates the mother’s great regard for fortuity and for those she dotes to be fortuitous. This desire for fortuity was so astringent that she won’t even dote her children or husband because of their lack of fortuity. Paul accepts his mother’s desire and cerebrates fortuity is a consequential trait to have. Following in his families footsteps Paul additionally aspires for great sums of mazuma through wagering.
Batista and Egeus both have a hand in the marriages of their daughters, but vary on the decision of whom should marry their daughters specifically. Both Batista and Egeus ignore their daughters when their daughters want to have a voice in who they marry. Unlike Egeus’s lack of involvement throughout the play, Batista is quite presence in his play and has a hand in the marriages of his daughters. At the end of the play, Batista accepts his daughters’ marriages, whereas, Egeus needs more persuasion by Theseus to accept the marriage of Hermia. The parallels between both Batista and Egeus show the similarities of the two fathers over their concern for their daughters’ futures.
Similarly, in “Walker Brothers Cowboy” (1968), the reader meets another young girl coming of age. Essential to the story is the relationship between the first-person narrator and her father. The narrator avoids identifying herself with the mother whom she apprehends to be ridiculed by the neighbors and idealizes instead her more relaxed father. Chodorow notes that the father´s role “serve[s] in part to break a daughter´s primary unit with and dependence on her mother. For this and a number of other reasons, fathers and men are idealized” (The Reproduction of Mothering 195).
This description alone is not enough for the reader to know for sure if this woman is Hector’s mother or not, but the poem helps the reader to infer that it is because of it’s motherly tone. The poem also helps the reader to infer that Stanley’s family is happily reunited once and for all. The reader knows that Stanley’s family is close and that they love each other by the way Stanley and his mother exchange letters. The author suggests that Stanley cares about his mother because he had promised to write to her once a week (6). Though, after his family is reunited the text never states if his family is satisfied again or if have changed in Stanley’s absence about the way they get along.
First, she married Romeo which was a big mistake.

Scene 6. Lines 35-37).
Autonomy of Marriage Growing up in an affluent and conservative family, my parents have always instructed me to find a mate with a matching social status. However, my family never restricted my brother and sister to marry who they love, which unfortunately either of them has done, provided they find their mates to be fitting their personalities and family status. During the classroom discussion on this issue, although I had some frictions with my original views, my central claim—parents should not control children’s marriage, but children themselves should exercise discretion. My parents’ view has also shaped my view on this issue. I believe parents should not control over whom their children marry, but the children themselves need to exercise discretion on whom they want to mate.
These three selections are the definition of perseverance here 's why. The first selection is Mother To Son the reason this show perseverance because the mother tells the son that life isn 't is easy and just know whatever happens in life always keep your head up and never give up on yourself.

To the mother, she is trying to warn the son he doesn 't know what 's coming for him because life comes in many bad ways. Another quote is when the mother tells son “and sometimes going in the dark where there has been no light” what she mean by this is that don 't let life keep you stuck in the dark for so long that
On a similar note, “Mother to Son” brings to life a talk that a mother is giving her son, telling him “Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair” (Hughes) in hopes of encouraging him not to give up. In addition to hardships, both stories also revolve around hope. The speaker in “The Writer” wishes his daughter will be successful, and speaks at length about how she hangs on every word like great writers. When his daughter stops writing, the speaker feels worried because he does not want her to fail. Similarly the
Torvald believes that a woman’s purpose for living is to serve her husband and children rather than be her own person. Her life has thus been revolved around men, adapting to the “needs” of men, being conditioned by her father and then her husband. He is most shocked that she would put herself above her family, a societal standard that woman must sacrifice themselves for others: “It’s shocking. This is how you would neglect your most sacred duties… your duties to your husband and children” (68). A Doll’s House is a scathing criticism of the roles women are expected to play as the submissive spouse, inferior sex, and a conformist.
