At the end of the day, I see Dee's character as a weakness because with all the education and sophistication she does not know the true importance of family and heritage. It is ironical that she tells her mother and sister that they do not understand their heritage, because it does seem that she does not know anything about it either she did change her name after all. Personally, I think that one should not live in isolation of ones history because it defines who you are. Irrespective of the kind of education and experiences Dee has, she should understand that culture can never be acquired. Culture can never be turned on and off at will, but that culture is lived.
The older sister thinks that is unfair that she can have anything she wants, but she chooses not to appreciate or take care of the good things her parents give. In today’s society this is a problem that many parents have with their younger kids, they get whatever they want without having to work for it. Unlike their older brothers/sisters who have to earn what they want is how the older sister feels. The last reason that the older sister is jealous of her is because she had an opportunity to get out of town and she threw the away. For instance the town that they live in is relatively small the older sister states “as soon as she got married and moved away from home the first thing she did was separate”(437).
“She could not”, she continues, “respect her parents, as she had hoped” (361). Looking at these two lines, Fanny can not respect her immediate family because they are without order.

Her aspirations seem limited to just having a good time. Her social status was a hindrance to Gatsby 's marriage to her. Gatsby knew that she would never marry him based on love, because he was poor. Daisy wouldn 't find it hard to deny him because it 's a simple as Gatsby puts it, “he had no real right to touch her hand “.

Katherina is understandably furious isn't ready to deal with Petruchio's strange behaviour and tells him he can leave but she will not be going with him.

They do not embrace their situation, and think about other solutions other than suicide. Romeo and Juliet act on impulse and make rash decisions without thinking about the consequences, which results in self-destruction, because of the burden and the extremity of love. Romeo and Juliet’s young love reflects their abruptness, rashness, and lack of maturity which leads to them getting suicide impulses throughout the story and causing Romeo and Juliet to ultimately suicide at the end of the story. Their love causes them to act very rashly and make unwise decisions, such as getting married and killing themselves. They are also too young to love because they are not mature enough.

Moving from one foster home to another is affecting her badly. She believes that happiness is being with her mother, but her theory soon changes.

Lady Macbeth’s character gradually disintegrates through a false portrayal of unyielding strength, an unsteady control of her husband and shifting involvement with supernatural powers.Throughout the duration of play Lady Macbeth’s truly decrepit and vulnerable nature is revealed.
