In fact she never called her husband George unless she was trying to manipulate him in some way. Tesman is so blind to Hedda’s manipulative nature that he responded with joy, “Hedda- Oh, is this true?- What you’re saying?… I never noticed that you loved me in this way before”(1458).

The relationship between Gatsby and Daisy is nothing like the one between Tom and Myrtle because they’re actually in love and they had been in love since they were much younger. I personally don’t think that Daisy would have cheated on Tom if he hadn’t cheated on her in the first place; he basically pushed her to cheat. She was clearly in love with Tom even though he did cheat on her but since his mistress would call him at his house and he didn’t try to hide the affair she decided that it was fine if she cheated as well. Seeing the reason why both Daisy and Tom cheated is what makes the readers feel differently about those relationships.
She uses her charm to tether in both Tom and Gatsby whom she uses as she needs. Daisy Buchanan, as lovely as she is, has more negative qualities than positive. She craves attention from both Tom and Gatsby, but she does not love either of them. Her charming voice kept Jay Gatsby longing for her for so many years, but in the end he is disappointed as Daisy choses Tom over him. Tom should not be so satisfied, because there is evidence that Daisy only chose Tom for his wealth and power.
It makes people think badly of the family and shames them. People knew that Wickham wasn?t in love with Lydia, and that Lydia lives for the excitement. Lydia?s attitude towards marriage was that she enjoys flirting and having a good time, so wasn?t thinking of her future. In the book it says that Mr Wickham?s ?affection for her soon sunk into indifference?. As they were not thinking about love or their future, their marriage is not a happy one and although Lydia likes to brag about being the first one of the daughters to be married, it is predicted she will regret this later.
It was not that she did not know what love was, for she had BEEN INFATUATED BEFORE, AND BELIEVED IT WAS love. She consciously chose to marry Mr. Pontellier even though she did not love him. When she falls in love with Robert she regrets her decision TO MARRY Mr. Pontellier. HOWEVER, readers should not sympathize, because she was the one who set her own trap. She did not love her husband when she married him, but SHE never once ADMITS that it was a bad decision.
Finally, Criseyde gives in herself and ends up falling in love. Reality check this is not love, but if anyone I know falls in love with this character I would try my best to keep him away from her in any cause. Ladies like Criseyde only desire to love men for their good. Criseyde loved Troilus not because of her will but more likely to satisfy her uncle’s demand. This explains that it was not a lover but more like a selfish deal because she did not want her uncle to die if she rejects Troilus and not become his lover.
She believes it is the best thing for her, but does not think of how being marrying so young might affect her. According to Nick; "For Daisy was young and her artificial world was redolent of orchids and pleasant, cheerful snobbery and orchestras... and all the time something within her was crying for a decision." (151) Daisy was ready to settle down and get married, but not just with any guy. She wanted the best, richest, good-looking, most powerful bachelor in town. What Daisy did not know was that marrying Tom Buchanan was the worst mistake she could make.
This isn’t what Daisy wanted at all. At some point Daisy loved Tom, and it’s very likely that she still does, regardless of all of his cheating. Living a life of riches for so long has affected her with affluenza, blinding her morals as it did to Tom. When someone already has everything they could ever ask for, they’re still going to want more. Something to work for, or else life becomes boring as Daisy points out many times in the novel.
Gatsby says to Tom in the hotel suit, "Your wife doesn 't love you. She 's never loved you. She loves me... She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart, she never loved anyone but me! (Fitzgerald 137)" At this point time Gatsby is thinking completely delusional thoughts about how Daisy has always been his, she was just using Tom as a filler until she could be with him, but what Gatsby wasn 't expecting was that Daisy truly loves Tom more than she loves him.
