Wealth is the key to a happy life along with love, however, love alone cannot provide happiness in marriage. Despite having loved Gatsby, Daisy has ended their relationship because Gatsby cannot provide her luxurious gifts, like the pearls that Tom bought her. After five years, Gatsby and Daisy have met and he has been changing his life in order to please her. Gatsby used Daisy as a motivation to become the man he is now, a prosperous man. We can see this in his house.
Wanting to be with her true love again, she sneaks visits with him without Tom knowing. Just like Myrtle had, Daisy torn into her own marriage. She loved both men, but as soon as it was found out, the men began fighting for her. “I glanced at Daisy who was staring terrified between Gatsby and her husband…” (Fitzgerald 143). This isn’t what Daisy wanted at all.
Although Mr. Collins could obviously never satisfy Charlotte as a husband, Charllote agrees to marry him for his money. Hence the original understanding of the quotation at the start of the novel seems to be justified. Mr. Darcy also seems to follow this quotation. He believes that woman would marry him for his wealth and status no matter what. Therefore, when he falls in love with Elizabeth he does not treat her with the preferential treatment with which one would normally treat his beloved.
She wants someone who has a lot of wealth in order for her to live a luxiours life. She begins to have an affair with Tom and it causes harm to her marriage which she has with George. She says to herself when meeting Tom the first time, "You can 't live forever; you can 't live forever" (38). Myrtle realizes Tom is a wealthy individual and having an affair with him will help her climb out of the social class in which she is trapped in. She sees him as the perfect man representing the American Dream.
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.
Daisy thought she would have love when she married Tom but she didn’t. That love was corrupted by money and power. She never ended up happy, she only ended up with money and that didn’t make her happy. Daisy also realized that she could’ve also married Gatsby for money and she would’ve also gotten the love and happiness she dreamed of from him. Daisy’s goal of living the American Dream and happiness was destroyed and so was her happiness.
She is manipulating Gatsby throughout the whole novel until he ... ... middle of paper ... ... her wealth as well as appearance, 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 except for me. (130) Despite her affection for Gatsby, Daisy still chooses to stay with Tom because of Gatsby’s shameful past and his connection to bootlegging and crimes, even though she’s also aware of Tom’s affair, which implies her lack of intellectualism. Tom and Daisy don’t care enough about their relationship emotionally to be bothered by indefinites, which establishes the lack of values they embody. Daisy is presented in a manner where she lacks morality and proceeds without conscience; she is selfish and doesn’t value others.
Until Fitzgerald started to become rich off his first novel, she had refused to marry him, much like how Daisy broke her promise to Gatsby and married Tom Buchanan. Zelda also cheated on Fitzgerald with a French naval aviator, mimicking Myrtle Wilson who pursued her own American Dream through having an affair with Tom (Willett). Not only was Zelda portrayed in the novel but Fitzgerald himself identified a character similar to himself: Jay Gatsby. Both men spent lavishly on parties that had been held to impress the love of their ... ... middle of paper ... ... would fare in the real world, and how Zelda caused Fitzgerald great grief and strife. The novel reflects his own ideals and places them in society where they fail, as it is reality.
Tom should not be so satisfied, because there is evidence that Daisy only chose Tom for his wealth and power. She is self-centered and acted only for herself when she chose Tom, because she was running away from the blame of Myrtle Wilson’s death.
Unfortunately she had to just had ... ... middle of paper ... ...is married however to anyone whom is not her brother. This is a complicated situation because Mr.Bingley is very naive and let's Darcy and his sisters walk all of we him. Since they told he Jane and he should not get married because of her wealth he listened to them letting outside factors and money stand in the way of his true love for Jane. In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice there are a plethora of relationships that show how the institution of marriage can be complicated yet critical when dealing with money and love. We are influenced throughout the novel to agree with her attitude towards her contempt for society.
