Tom should not be so satisfied, because there is evidence that Daisy only chose Tom for his wealth and power.
She says, “The onl... ... middle of paper ... ...ike his true self, the one she had fallen in love with before everything, things would have worked out in the end. In the end of the book, no one gets what they want. Daisy stays with Tom in the end because of his wealth and because the real Gatsby she fell in love with is no longer there- he is simply a poser now.

In The Great Gatsby, the characters demonstrate that love has no relevant meaning in a relationship without the security that wealth provides. Gatsby and Wilson present Daisy and Myrtle with much of love; however, they both are stunned when Tom’s wealth and security win over the two ladies’ hearts A similar situation occurred with the author Francis Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda.

Wealth is the key to a happy life along with love, however, love alone cannot provide happiness in marriage.

But this isn’t all true, Daisy was so impressed by Gatsby’s wealth that her greed once again took over her and she was almost prepared to leave Tom for Gatsby. Also, I don’t think that she loved her daughter. Daisy’s daughter was just a little plaything for Daisy’s enjoyment.

Since Daisy was married, the idea of love between Gatsby and Daisy was forbidden. This very concept made the relationship all the more desirable. Gatsby becomes obsessed with his relationship with Daisy to the point that he was delusional. His only objective was to win Daisy back. When Tom learns of Gatsby and Daisy’s secret affair, he is outraged.
He starts out as a man who would do anything for the woman he desperately loves. It is obvious that the couple is infatuated with each other and that neither partner would ever commit such a crime as being unfaithful. But, once spiteful Iago plants the lie and rumor, Othello changes. Love has changed him for the worse because in the end, Othello trusted his “honest, best friend,” over his wife. It would seem that there might have been trust issues in the beginning of the lovers’ relationship because Othello changed his mind about Desdemona quite quickly.
