During the tea meeting and tour of Gatsby’s mansion set up for Daisy and Gatsby set up by Nick it is clear that Gatsby is acting differently than normal.

Daisy 's desire for wealth lead her to plague her relationships, and the poor decisions she made were all caused to feed her greed. Daisy’s appetite for wealth came from her surroundings when growing up. She had all she ever needed and more, because of this, it carried out into her adulthood. And rather than a luxury it became a necessity.
Although Gatsby knows that Daisy is married to Tom Buchanan, he hosts dazzling parties and even “[buys] the [mansion] so that Daisy would be just across the bay” (Fitzgerald, 78). If Gatsby is to truly love Daisy, instead of destroying her marriage, he would have let her go. However, because of his extreme devotion towards Daisy, he dreams of a utopia where their feelings for each other is mutual.

She says, “a girl with such extravagant tastes and no money had better marry the first rich man she could get”(83). Trenor then comments on how “if she had married Gryce she would have been surrounded by flattery and approval”(83).

It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved any one except me!” Daisy also said: “ I never loved him” which is Tom “ I loved him once--- but I loved you too.” “Daisy is leaving you” said Gatsby “She’s not leaving me” said Tom Eventually Tom said “You two start on home,Daisy,” “In Mr. Gatsby 's Car” As you can see, Tom actually really loved Daisy and so is Gatsby.
But when the two are reunited after nick sets up a meeting and when she sees Gatsby’s house she learns that she is rich and becomes attracted to him again simply for the fact that he has money. Gatsby is a very good example for this theme and his actions show just how far he is willing to go to get what he wants.
