Janie listened to her grandmother’s ideas about love and went into her first marriage enormously unguided. In the end she felt very disappointed with her marriage to Logan, but nonetheless, she was able to learn that marriage and love were not always synonymous.

Scott Fitzengerald create Daisy to be the perfect women from a shallow outside perspective, however he displays her as a different character that hides her true self because she feels like she is required to hide it.

John’s message would remarkable change the story because it would give a possibility of mending Tita’s relationship with her mother. By “keeping close to those who love you”, Tita could likely learn to appreciate her mother. The story would be torn apart because the main antagonist is her mother, by mending the relationship between with mother, you might as well throw away half of the story because Tita’s mother caused much of the problems Tita has to deal in the other half of the story such as the drama with Rosaura and Pedro.

Alice’s sister steps in and is surprised by Alice’s reaction and in a certain sense goes on to scare and guilt her into marriage. She tells Alice that she would be foolish to decline the Lords proposal as her looks weren’t going to last forever and that she wouldn’t be able to do better than a Lord. She makes Alice feel guilty by asking her if she does want to simply become a burden to their mother and then tries to scare her by saying that is she declines she may become like aunt Imogen, who is an older woman who never married and seems to suffer from psychotic delusions and seems to have lost her grasp of reality.
Anna is willing to give up whatever it takes to seek reconciliation and even sets aside her own romantic dreams and aspirations. In this light, it makes sense that Frozen’s male characters are not a strong part of the storyline. They are only supporting characters. The leading narrative arc revolves around selfless love and the act of sisterly sacrifice.
