Janie, at first, doubts Tea Cake loves her because of her age and then, on account of her fortune, fears he may have married her only to run off with her money. However, Tea Cake proves through and through that he loves Janie for Janie and treats her with love accordingly. Though Janie and Tea Cake’s marriage is not perfect, (such as when he beats her to show Mrs. Turner and her brother that he is in possession of Janie) she has found the “bee for her bloom” in Tea Cake. Willingly, unlike with Killicks who would have forced her, Janie works with her husband in the fields when she and Tea Cake make a home in the Everglades (184–185). When jealousies arise through the flirtation of Nunkie, a girl who takes a liking to Tea Cake, Janie and Tea Cake fight but talk through and express their feelings over the flirtation to one another until each gives in and they become united once more (188–191).

All the dreams she had for a happily ever after was washed away with marrying him “She knew now that marriage did not make love. / Janie’s first dream was dead, so she became a woman.” And earlier we see that she felt he was “was desecrating the pear tree” but did not know how to tell her Nanny, so she just “hunched over and pouted at the floor”. So as tie goes on things go as expected and she meets someone named Jody Startks. And even though he did not meet the standard of her pear tree, he seemed like a better option than what was in her life at the moment.

Even though none of Janie’s three marriages were perfect, I noticed that her third husband, Tea Cake, was the finest husband that Janie had throughout her lifetime. I can to this realization when Janie mentioned in the book that Tea Cake was her real first love. Throughout their twelve years of marriage, Tea Cake taught her to find ultimate happiness and understanding in herself.. Whereas Logan treated her like a pet and Jody silenced her, Tea Cake encouraged her personality and introduced her to new skills and experiences.

Janie’s first dream was dead, so she became a woman.” This realization made by Janie supports one of the biggest themes in this novel, which is that the concept of innocence and womanhood can’t exist at the same time. Because Janie finally lets go of her “childish fantasy”, her innocence is lost and she is now a woman. The theme of lost innocence in exchange for womanhood is also prevalent in Hurston’s story Sweat. This idea is one of the reasons that Sykes and Delia’s relationship begins to fall apart when we meet them. One example of innocence without womanhood is when Janie first creates her pear tree fantasy.

In the novel, Their eyes were watching God written by Zora Neale Hurston, the character who I believe sacrificed the most would be, Janie. At the age of sixteen, She was forced into marriage, which had caused her to give up her innocence. Throughout the novel, she is viewed as a strong, powerful, and a hopeful woman, who is degraded and belittled by men. In the end, Janie married Tea Cake who showed her the way life should of been and learned what it was like being loved by a man who had not taken her for granted. At the age of sixteen, She unwillingly married Logan Killicks and had a hard time transitioning into the wife that Logan wanted.
It is comparing Janie who is a human into something that has been taught to cater to the master. Janie felt as though she had been bosses over these years and with Joe 's death she was finally running away.
