Hedda’s relationship with all three men ultimately created a life she was unhappy with thus leading her closer to her death. Her husband, who is suppose to the love of a young wives life meant nothing to Hedda. She treated Tesman as if he was her servant and used him to get whatever she wanted. But her selfishness came back to bite her because she felt completely condemned to life with Tesman which was boring and uneventful. Lovborg was the closest to loving a man who wasn't her father Hedda ever had but she pushed him away and ultimately helped Lovborg’s death arrive sooner then intended by giving him her pistol.
So when he said it, it came out basically as "yes honey I was alone with the women I cheated with" (not an actual quote) the conflict between the two could be considered a major trust issue. John Proctor had an affair with his ex-servant girl, Abigail. John Proctor eventually wanted to end the affair, because of the obvious reason of him wanting to be a "good man". Abigail did not want to end the affair, she was still in love with John Proctor "Abigail: John I am waiting for you every night" (1045 Miller), she still wants to be with him.
Hawthorne’s story describes the harmful effects of Aylmer’s obsession with the almost-perfection of his wife. Aylmer initially did not seem to notice or care about the small birthmark on Georgiana’s cheek. But soon after they marry, the birthmark haunts him, until he no longer cares about anything else. Alymer is not content with simply having his wife the way she is; she must be perfect. He relates this imperfection to sin; “it was the fatal flaw of humanity… the symbol of his wife’s liability to sin, sorrow, decay, and death” (Hawthorne, 633).
They are married, which is a sacred bond tying two people together that love each other very much. When Hester senses that she may never again see her husband, who had all but abandoned her, she seeks comfort in the arms of another man. She thought that Chillingsworth would never find out. When he did find out, he became very angry at losing his wife; she had betrayed him. He responded by trying to kill the other party, Arthur Dimmesdale.
Puritan belief tells us it should be Hester Prynne, because she was a weak-willed woman who broke the vow given to her husband and conceived a child with someone else. However, Hawthorne declares Chillingworth as the greatest sinner because he left his wife alone, lied to the community, betrayed the trust of his patient as a friend and a doctor, and clutched revenge too fondly to his heart. Before Chillingworth ever was the man after so many turns of events, he had been Master Prynne, happy bridegroom to Hester. Knowing his wife did not love him, he strove to please her, yet at once forgot about his duty as a husband to “...dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel” (1 Peter 3:7 KJV) and sent her to take care of his lands in Boston. This would have been slightly acceptable if he had promised to come to her in the very next passage after completing some important affairs, but that was not the case.
She decided to come into a relationship with the son of the other family, Edgar Linton. This was what made Heathcliff run away, because she had chosen Edgar over him because he was not as honorable. Catherine was deeply hurt for a long time after Heathcliff left. When she finally got back on her feet, her and Edgar were married. After a while, Heathcliff returned, and they both realized their feeling for each other all over again.
Abigail believed that if she got rid of Elizabeth Proctor, then John Proctor would become her own. John Proctor had an affair with Abigail, but for him it was just lust, while Abigail believed it to be true love. She told John Proctor that she loved him, and once she destroys Elizabeth, they would be free to love one another. John is horrified at this, but can do nothing to convince Abigail that he is not in love with her. Because of Abigail's twisted plot to secure John for herself, Elizabeth is arrested.
For many characters it is challenging to see through Yanna’s false appearance, but that was not the case for Sol. Sol “saw, a broken life, a frightened woman, a marriage that would bind him-however briefly-to grief” and therefore, regrets, agreeing to marry Yanna (Richler 7). Sol’s consent for marriage to Yanna causes him greater regret as his brother’s and niece’s lives are ruined as a result of this arrangement. Yanna pretends to be a loving mother and wife but truly she is not. Years later, when Ruth finally meets her mother Yanna, she finds out that her mother is also apologetic for the way her false appearance affected her first family.
As her "daddy's daughter", there is little doubt that a form of love exists between Ruth Dead and Dr. Foster; however, such love is not truly love because as evidenced by Ruth's subsequent life, the filial relationship better resembles an emotional dependence that Ruth took for granted (67). The great emotional schism within her that is the result of her father's death leaves Ruth dysfunctional: she is unable to emote towards other, especially her family. Instead, ... ... middle of paper ... ... Sunday man. He has instead become his cause, and the person behind that cause has been lost. In Song of Solomon, through many different types of love, Ruth's incestuous love, Milkman and Hagar's romantic love, and Guitar's love for his race, Toni Morrison demonstrates not only the readiness with which love will turn into a devastating and destructive force, but also the immediacy with which it will do so.
Prior to presenting the expectations her brothers have of her, Faulkner establishes a series of prerequisites to her downfall as an explanation for their unreasonable and selfish intentions. The Compson encounter little parental support due to the obsessions and selfishness of their parents. Mrs. Compson is depicted as a woman who finds parenting a punishment from God, stating: "I thought that Benjamin was punishment enough for any sins I have committed. I thought he was my punishment for putting aside my pride and marrying a man who held himself above me I don't complain; I loved him above all of them because of it because my duty" (Faulkner 154). She is thus painfully unable to support her children and leaves Caddy with no moral compass to help navigate through the development of a young woman.
