Irene starts suspecting that Clare is trying to get her man away from her because when they Irene and Brian were together, he was not himself. In the story, Irene felt that “He was discontented, yet there were times when she felt he was possessed of some intense secret satisfaction,”. (pt.3) This quote conveys the idea that Irene is starting to become suspicious of Brian, because the part where she says “ he was discontented’ gives it away that Brian is not happy anymore. Whenever a man feels this way with their wife and has been seeing other women, it is because they don’t feel the same tension that the guy feels with his new women. It is ironic how in the story, Irene’s husband, Brian, is cheating on her, similar to Larsen’s situation where her husband had an affair with one of the staff where he
Although this was done in the name of modernity (to emulate the West), it was done without women’s consent and deprived them of their own choice, which ‘[led] to the social isolation of women who refused to unveil.’ These women, who felt ‘naked’ without some form of covering, would often stay at home, and became dependent on their husband’s income. Furthermore, apart from the economic impact, veiled women were also limited in the public sphere; their access to government positions were denied and they were unable to enjoy their previous leisurely activities. Despite this being the unveiling of women, the act demonstrates that women were seen as signifiers of certain ideals, and the veil as an object that men could use to manipulate women. Even through banning the veil in an attempt to throw off Orientalist tropes, this form of westernisation had led to a different form of oppression for women: whilst some rejoiced, others had suffered. In her article, Hoodfar notes after an interview with an Iranian woman, that were few objections by men to the new legislation, ‘since men always wanted to keep their women at home’.
He was spoiled by his older sisters but was sown no love from his widowed mother. Soon after his father’s death, his mother remarried. She unknowingly, married an abusive alcoholic, named Carl August Lingbergh. Carl was abusive to Richards’s mother and this was the foundation for how Richard thought women should be treated. His family moved
When she was younger, she was promised that she would receive a letter and become an actress. After waiting long enough, she accused her mother of destroying the letter and her dreams. In retaliation, she marries Curley to get back at her mother as she states, “ I ask her if she stole it, too, an’ she says no. So I married Curley” (Steinbeck 88). Now she is no longer in contact with her family, and she reveals “I don’ like Curley.
She too married out of fear of society. When she was 23, “old” by 1880s standards, she married a fellow member of the elite class; Edward Roberts Wharton. He was 13 years older than her and both agreed they were not suited for each other. After twenty-eight years of traveling, buying homes, and Edith writing they divorced. During their rocky marriage, Edith designed and built their home called The Mount.
Cora is judgmental of Addie’s perceived favoritism of Jewel because in her mind, Jewel does not behave correctly. However, it is not her place to criticize someone else for things that she cannot understand. This is clear, because she then goes on to claim that Jewel did not really love his mother because according to Cora, he would rather “make that extra three dollars” than to give his mother a “goodbye kiss” (21-22). In Cora 's eyes Darl was the good son and Jewel was the bad son. In her eyes Darl was the son that cared more about Addie and the son that was more sympathetic while Addie was dying.
Her father, Baptista, did not have a relationship with Katherine, therefore, she struggled with relationships with her family. She also acted this way towards Petruchio, the man who was going to take her hand in marriage. When Petruchio was trying to tame Katherine, she
Murrow: Even though Goody Proctor denied that her husband committed lechery with Abigail. Abigail refused to confirm it nor deny it. This brings up the question of why didn’t she want to answer the question? She could have simply denied that she never met up with John Proctor and all would have been fine for her, yet she withstood. Abigail initially stated that she wanted to be embraced by the light of God and the Love of Jesus yet that diary found in her room exists, along with Mary Warren contradicting Abigail and her refusal to deny John Proctor's confession; and all for what?
The applicant, the mother of the infants, had been divorced by the respondent, the father of the infants. At the time of the divorce, the Kathi had recorded a consent order giving the custody of the infants to the respondent. Since the divorce the applicant had remarried a man not related to the infants.
